We have presented a unique case of isolated renal artery dissection in an otherwise healthy young man, whose diagnosis was demonstrated by renal angiography. He was anticoagulated with warfarin for one year with resolution of the false channel in his renal artery as demonstrated by magnetic resonance angiography. Duplex ultrasonography of his renal artery was important in monitoring his renal artery flow velocities.
