The exact symptoms of MAS/RVH will depend on the individual child, but can include:

  • headaches
  • seizures
  • vision changes
  • abdominal pain that begins after a meal
  • discomfort or weakness in the legs during exercise
  • poor growth
Not only are MAS and RVH rare and potentially life-threatening conditions; they can also affect different children in very different ways. It's essential to seek care from a team of pediatric specialists who are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating these conditions and all related complications.

Most children with midaortic syndrome and/or renovascular hypertension are diagnosed after being examined for signs of severe high blood pressure (hypertension).

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
