Hypertension affect about 1% of patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). Major causes are concomitant pheocromocytoma in adults and renovascular hypertension in children.

We describe a 16 year old girl with hypertension complicating NF1 secondary to severe coarctation of abdominal aorta and tight stenosis of right renal artery, a very uncommon case. She was first diagnosed when she was 3-years-old and managed with antihypertensive drugs (atenolol, hidralazine and nifedipine); she experienced progressive uncontrollable hypertension but no symptoms, thus she was admitted to repeat studies...
