Renal infarction is a rare vascular disease describing the obstruction of the renal artery or its branches from blood clots formed in the vascular system of the patient. The correct diagnosis may prove to be a challenging procedure considering that the disease may mimic the symptomatology of urinary lithiasis or other urologic emergencies. A discussion of the diagnostic dilemmas, imaging modalities, treatment options, and prognosis of the disease, based on the more recent findings, is presented in this review.
