Hypertension & Kidney Disease | Renovascular Hypertension vs Hypertensive Nephropathy

Hypertension & Kidney Disease | Renovascular Hypertension (and Renoparenchymal HTN) vs Hypertensive Nephropathy.
Renovascular hypertension means a renal artery stenosis (most commonly caused by fibromuscular dysplasia in a young female, and atherosclerosis in an old male).
Renal parenchymal hypertension could be caused by nephrotic syndrome (loss of protein in the urine) or nephritic syndrome (loss of blood in the urine).
Hypertensive nephropathy is when a kidney pathology causes secondary hypertension (as opposed to the idiopathic, primary, or essential hypertension).
