The article presents a study of correcting hypertension produced by a solitary kidney with renal artery stenosis by autotransplantation. Surgical manipulation of a solitary kidney, although entailing the risk of losing all renal function, must be considered for the patient in whom stenosis of a renal artery is producing life-threatening hypertension and impending renal failure. It presents a case report of a patient who has underwent successful renal autotransplantation of a solitary kidney with nearly complete arterial stenosis which produced severe, drug-resistant hypertension.
