Renal pseudoaneurysm as a cause of hematuria in a colt

Larsdotter, Sara; Ley, Charles; Pringle, John


An 8-month-old Arabian warmblood cross colt was evaluated for overt hematuria. The horse was severely anemic on presentation. A unilateral intrarenal vascular anomaly with unilateral pyelonephritis was diagnosed. Nephrectomy was attempted but was unsuccessful, and postmortem examination demonstrated the presence of an intrarenal pseudoancurysm.
