Takayasu's arteritis and congenital coarctation of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta: a critical review

AJR. American Journal of Roentgenology

A critical reappraisal of the clinical, arteriographic, and pathologic features of Takayasu's arteritis and so-called congenital aortic coarctations at atypical sites is presented. It is concluded that as an isolated cardiovascular abnormality, cases of atypical congenital coarctations of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta are probably rare. The majority of atypical aortic coarctations previously reported in the United States and Europe as congenital lesions apparently represent unrecognized cases of Takayasu's arteritis.

Aortic Coarctation

Aortic coarctation is a congenital condition characterized by narrowing of the aorta. Discover the latest research on this disease here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.
