- 65 Downloads
Intra-renal pseudo-aneurysms after penetrating renal trauma have not been reported in children. We report a case of a 9-year-old girl who presented with gross haematuria 2 weeks following renal exploration for a penetrating injury. The diagnosis of intra-renal pseudoaneurysm was made by Doppler ultrasound and was successfully treated by selective arterial embolisation.
