Fibromuscular Dysplasia, also called FMD, is a disease that causes arteries to develop abnormally causing areas of narrowing. FMD can lead to severe headaches, high blood pressure, stroke, aneurysms, and tears of the arterial wall.
FMD is most commonly found in the arteries that supply the kidneys and the carotid and vertebral arteries which are found in the neck and supply the brain with blood flow.
There is no known cause or cure for FMD. For more information visit www.fmdsa.org
