Paradoxical increase in blood pressure following bilateral native nephrectomy

Abstract

Hypertension with Chronic kidney disease is often difficult to control medically. In such patients, nephrectomy can help to control blood pressure (BP). We describe a case of a 6-year-old boy with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease who showed a paradoxical increase in BP following bilateral nephrectomy.
