, also known as Martorell's syndrome, is an inflammatory disease that often affects the aorta and the proximal segments of the main aortic.

is a chronic inflammatory arteritis affecting large vessels, predominantly the aorta and its main branches.
is more centrally located (therefore also known as aortic arch syndrome) and mainly affects the aorta and the main branches in the thoracic region (carotid arteries, brachiocephalic trunk, subclavian arteries, and the pulmonary arteries).

DIAGNOSIS: Diagnostic criteria for Takayasu's arteritis
as per 1990 American college of Rheumatology (ACR):
DISCUSSION: Takayasu's arteritis
is a rare, systemic, inflammatory large-vessel vasculitis of unknown etiology that most commonly affects women of childbearing age.

The patient and control cohorts were selected by 1:1 matching according to the following baseline variables: age; sex; comorbidities including hypertension (ICD-9-CM 401-405), diabetes mellitus (DM) (ICD-9-CM 250), hyperlipidemia (ICD-9-CM 272.0-272.4), Behcet's disease (ICD-9-CM 136.1), giant cell arteritis (ICD-9-CM 446.5), RA and other inflammatory polyarthropathies (ICD-9-CM 714), relapsing polychondritis (ICD-9-CM 733.99), and Takayasu's arteritis
(ICD-9-CM 446.7); chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) (ICD-9-CM 490-496); and medication history including use of a [sz]-blocker, calcium channel blocker, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, angiotensin receptor blocker, diuretic, steroid, or other immunosuppressant drug.

(TA) is a rare disease characterized by a focal stenotic process involving the aorta and the proximal segments of its main branches.
Other causes of CMI include fibromuscular dysplasia, vasculitis (Takayasu's arteritis
, giant cell arteritis, polyarteritis nodosa, systemic lupus erythematosus, and thromboangiitis obliterans), malign tumors, and radiation.
However, it is surprising that no patient with Takayasu's arteritis
or other renovascular hypertensive disease seen in our department has developed PRES.
Normally, aortic lesions are more frequently seen in large vessel vasculitis, such as giant cell arteritis and Takayasu's arteritis
