DRAGER, Luciano F.; SILVA, Hélio Bernardes  and  BORTOLOTTO, Luiz A.. Increased arterial distensibility and renovascular hypertension in Goldenhar syndrome. Clinics [online]. 2005, vol.60, n.2, pp.173-176. ISSN 1980-5322.

This is a report of the successful angioplastic treatment of an association of renovascular hypertension with renal artery stenosis and the Goldenhar syndrome (a variant of oculoauriculovertebral dysplasia). For the first time to date, this association, which occurred in a 13-year-old girl, is reported. Additionally, increased arterial distensibility in spite of arterial hypertension was detected by noninvasive methods. The similarity of this finding and in those for other genetic diseases, suggests that the vascular lesions could be linked to the Goldenhar syndrome.

Keywords : Goldenhar syndrome; Renovascular hypertension; Arterial distensibility.
