Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) is an uncommon vascular disease that affects the arteries of the body and is more commonly seen in women. Though FMD was first described in 1938, only in the past decade have there been major advances in the understanding of this condition. In 2017, FMD remains poorly understood by many medical professionals, and arriving at the right diagnosis can be difficult, even for patients who have symptoms of this disease.
