Curable hypertension of renal vascular origin is a disease that continues to present difficulties in diagnosis. The principal reason for these recurring problems is that the available diagnostic procedures provide only indirect evidence for a correctable renal lesion responsible for hypertension. Further refinement of our understanding of the relationship between the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and hypertension will undoubtedly lead to a direct means for assessing the role of a diseased kidney in hypertension. Until then, however, most physicians must rely on an anatomic and functional evaluation of the individual kidneys for the diagnosis of hypertension-producing renal lesions.
