Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is a noninflammatory, nonatheromatous, systemic disease of unknown etiology that is rarely seen in children. The association of renal artery stenosis and stroke is not well established and adequately evaluated in children. We, herein, report a case of a pediatric FMD patient with a complex clinical presentation characterized by stroke and persistent hypertension, due to its rarity.
