Congenital arteriovenous malformations are rare lesions of the kidneys. The first case of bilateral renal arteriovenous malformations was described in 1987. A case of extensive bilateral intrarenal arterivenous malformations presented to us as a case of hypertension. Renal angiography confirmed the diagnosis. Magnetic resonance angiography ruled out these malformations in cerebral circulation, and enhanced abdominal CT scan was normal. The blood pressure of the patient was controlled by medical therapy only.
