Bilateral renal artery stenosis was diagnosed noninvasively in the 17th gestational week, in a chronically hypertensive pregnant woman, by renal artery duplex ultrasound examination, MRI and MR angiography. Continuous monitoring of the mother and the fetus was performed. Blood pressure was stabilized by complex antihypertensive therapy, but from the beginning of the third trimester superimposed preeclampsia developed gradually. In the 34th gestational week a 1600-g newborn was delivered by elective cesarean section. The case report draws attention to the significance of the thorough examination of hypertensive women before pregnancy.
