A “Page kidney” refers to compression of the renal parenchyma with subsequent production of arterial hypertension. This physiology was first described in 1939 by Dr. Irvine Page (Fig. 1), who reported that implantation of cellophane around the kidneys of animals resulted in the development of a constrictive hull of tissue about the kidneys and the development of arterial hypertension . In clinical practice, renal parenchymal compression resulting in arterial hypertension is frequently the result of a subcapsular hematoma (Fig. 2) .
