Abstract

Leber hereditary optic neuropathy is an inherited, rare, mitochondrial metabolic disease that leads to progressive vision loss due to the accumulation of reactive oxygen species. The disorder has been associated with microangiopathy and macroangiopathy. We present a novel case of saccular left renal artery aneurysm in a 27-year-old man with known Leber hereditary optic neuropathy. The lesion was asymptomatic and grew from 1.8 to 2.0 cm during the course of 1 year. We successfully performed an endovascular left renal artery aneurysm repair.
