Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) of the arteries of the extremities has been reported few times in the literature. The clinical significance of FMD relates to the consequences of interruption of arterial blood to the tissues. We report here the second case of FMD of the brachial artery and discuss the failure of the calcium channel blocker, nifedipine, in the therapy of this disorder. A review of the pertinent literature is included.
