Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is an uncommon disorder characterized by abnormal cellular growth (cluster of cells   in the walls of medium and large arteries. This abnormal cellular growth may lead to a beaded appearance of the affected artery and narrowing in some cases.
Most common arteries include carotid arteries, and renal artery. FMD also affects arteries of brain, abdomen, arms and legs.
Types of fibromuscular dysplasia 
  • Tunica intima (the inside layer)
  • Tunica media (the middle layer)
  • Adventitia (the outside layer)


The causes of FMD are still unknown and are the focus of considerable research. The disease most likely has multiple underlying causes. Some of the factors that may play a role include: 
  • Genetics: Familial (inherited) history of FMD
  • Hormonal influences: post menopausal women.
  • Internal mechanical stress, trauma or stress to the artery walls.

Loss of oxygen supply to the blood vessel wall: This occurs when the tiny blood vessels in the artery walls that supply them with oxygenated blood get blocked by fibrous lesions due tobacco and toxic medications

Risk Factors 
Women aged between 25 to 50 years are prone to get FMD  than the men
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes

Many people with FMD do not have any symptoms, but symptoms can occur if the narrowing is severe enough to restrict blood flow through the affected artery.

  3. Lightheadedness.
  4. Sudden neck pain
  5. Stroke or a transient ischemic attack (TIA).
  6. Aneurysms
  7. Facial numbness
FMD of the renal arteries 
  • High blood pressure
  • Decreased kidney function (renal insufficiency)
  • Chronic renal failure
FMD of abdominal arteries 
  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal pain after eating
FMD of arms and legs  arteries 
  • Pain in the limbs
