Abstract

A case is presented of a female patient in whom an intra vitamhistopathological examination revealed fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD). Clinically she manifested arterial insufficiency episodes, as well as anxiety and depressive states. The patient's mental status was improved after treatment with mianserine and prazepam. This is the first FMD case described in psychiatric literature.
