    Intrarenal arteriovenous fistulas following percutaneous renal biopsy have beenobserved in 3 children. One of them was severely and another mildly hypertensive prior to biopsy. In 2 of them, bilateral fistulas were demonstrated. Repeat arteriograms about a year later did not disclose any evidence of a fistula in either kidney of these two patients. Some of the manifestations of this type of distula seems to heal spontaneously in the majority of instances.
