Takayasu’s arteritis (TA) mainly affects the aorta and its major branches. The lesions are distributed in all elastic arteries that possess vasa vasorum. The frequency of the sites of arterial involvement reflects racial and geographic differences [1–7]. In Japan, stenosis or occlusion of the supra-aortic arch branches is commonly observed and leads to pulseless disease [5–7]. We present the spiral CT angiography (CTA) and intraarterial digital subtraction angiography (IA-DSA) findings of the… CONTINUE READING
