Successful bilateral renal revascularization was performed 24 days after the development of angiotensin converting enzyme-inhibitor-induced bilateral renal artery thrombosis and anuric acute renal failure in a patient with Takayasu's arteritis. Excellent results were obtained after an unusually long ischemic time for a patient with active-phase disease. The outcome suggests that aggressive surgical revascularization can benefit patients with renal failure caused by renal arterial occlusion during the active phase of Takayasu's arteritis.
