Renal artery thrombosis is a threatening clinical diagnosis, in which renal infarction may occur. Often misdiagnosed, for mimicking other common diseases, it should be considered in persistent flank pain to improve care and reduce morbidity. We review a case of a healthy, 57 year-old woman with renal artery thrombosis mimicking pyelonephritis and renal calculus obstruction, highlighting features of this clinical condition. An accurate diagnosis is essential for optimal management and prompts treatment, which still remains to be defined.
