To clarify the role of myofibroblasts in the development of inflammatory aortic aneurysm (IAA), 11 cases of IAA (69.2+/-8.59 years) were investigated immunohistochemically and were morphometrically compared with 12 age-matched cases of atherosclerotic abdominal aneurysm (AAA, 69.6+/-5.94 years). The positivity of mantle sign and CRP was significantly higher in the IAA group than in the AAA group. The wall of IAA (5.41+/-1.47 mm) was significantly thicker than that of AAA (2.68+/-0.71 mm).
