Takayasu arteritis

Takayasu arteritis
progressive obliteration of the brachiocephalic trunk and the subclavian and common carotid arteries above their origin in the aortic arch, leading to loss of pulse in both arms and carotids. This may be followed by symptoms associated with ischemia of the brain (such as syncope or transient hemiplegia), of the eyes (such as transient blindness or retinal atrophy), of the face (such as muscular atrophy), of the arms (such as claudication), or of the kidneys. Called also aortic arch a., brachiocephalic a. or ischemia, Martorell syndrome, pulseless disease, reversed coarctation, and Takayasu disease or syndrome.
