      Low body mass index in nutcracker phenomenon: an underrecognized condition.
      The body mass index (BMI) of the patient was 18.4kg/m2 at presentation and 19.0kg/m2 at resolution. We did not judge this increase as significant. In our case, however, slightly distended lumbar collateral vein was already found. Therefore, we speculated that the development of collateral veins caused the hemodynamic change of the left renal vein.
