Fibromuscular dysplasia is a common cause of renal artery stenosis in young/middle aged females (FA2020 p 604)

Fibromuscular dysplasia is associated with the characteristic beads on a string appearance on angiogram (p300).

Hyaline arteriolosclerosis is thickening of vessel walls secondary to plasma protein leak, commonly found in essential hypertension or diabetes (p301).
