The findings are discussed in three patients with isolated dissecting aneurysm of the artery to the superior pole of the right kidney. These were incidental findings at autopsy and did not contribute to death, which in one case was due to (cerebral trauma secondary to a fall, in another to bronchopneumonia, and in the third, to hemorrhage from esophageal varices. Degenerative changes were found in the media of arteries remote from the site of involvement, and it is thought that these were a predisposing factor in the development of the dissection, which occurred as a preterminal event in all cases.
