Fibromuscular dysplasia FMD is a non-atherosclerotic, non-inflammatory vascular disease. FMD once considered rare, is increasingly a condition recognised as an incidental finding. It is an important cause of stroke especially in younger, female patients and therefore a high index of suspicion is required. FMD has distinct pathological findings along with some pathognomonic angiographic findings -string of beads- appearance. The mainstay of cerebrovascular FMD treatment is antiplatelet therapy but intervention with percutaneous transluminal angioplasty is indicated under some circumstances. We present an interesting case of a woman in her 60 s who underwent extensive investigation to identify the underlying aetiology of her stroke.
