Congenital vascular abnormalities and inflammatory arteritides are rare causes of renovascular hypertension with unique epidemiology and diagnostic and therapeutic considerations. Patients with these disorders require lifelong clinical management and can develop cardiovascular complications. This chapter provides an in-depth review of coarctation of the aorta and Takayasu arteritis as prototypical congenital and inflammatory disorders and provides an overview of other clinically relevant vascular disorders associated with renovascular hypertension.
