Answer

See the list below:

  • This accounts for fewer than 10% of all cases of renal FMD.

  • Collagen deposition occurs in the intima of the vessels.

  • Internal elastic lamina may be disrupted.

  • The lumen may be concentrically narrowed in a relatively short region, causing a ringlike stenosis on angiography, or it may be narrowed over a longer region as a smooth tubular stenosis.
