FALCAO, Luis Pedro et al. An atypical presentation of a severe and massive atheroembolic disease. J. Bras. Nefrol. [online]. In press. , pp.-.  Epub Aug 20, 2018. ISSN 0101-2800.

Atheroembolic renal disease (AERD) is a kidney manifestation of atherosclerosis as a systemic disease. AERD is defined as a renal impairment secondary to embolization of cholesterol crystals with consequent occlusion of renal vascularization. The current case report describes one patient with multiple risk factors but without any inciting event history who presents a very atypical clinical course of a severe and massive atheroembolic disease that developed spontaneously and silently.

Keywords : Atherosclerosis; Cholesterol; Embolism.
