Abstract

A 13-year-old boy was admitted to the hospital because of headache, nausea, seizures, renal failure, and hypertension. Three weeks earlier, headaches, fatigue, and anorexia developed, with constipation and occasional nausea and vomiting. On the day of admission, nausea and vomiting became severe; episodes of numbness of the right leg and dizziness occurred, and he came to the emergency department, where he was found to be hypertensive with renal failure. A diagnostic procedure was performed.
