Six cases were diagnosed as cardiovascular syphilis and presented with aortitis
and thoracic aneurysm.
La revision critica de la informacion publicada en estos reportes nos permite estar seguros de la coexistencia de aortitis
con paquimeningitis en solo tres pacientes: uno con enfermedad de Cogan (26), uno con enfermedad relacionada con IgG-4 (29) y uno con granulomatosis con poliangeitis (31).
, periaortitis, and retroperitoneal fibrosis, as manifestations of IgG4-related systemic disease.
Antibiotic treatment must be initiated for the salmonella-induced aortitis
When patients develop persistent fever but have negative blood cultures after cardiac surgery that may have damaged the aortic wall, consider Aspergillus aortitis
Since the men had previously been well and all their other heart valves were judged to be free of disease, it is reasonable to place syphilitic aortitis
and aortic valve rupture at the top of the list of diagnostic possibilities.
Anatomic evidence of aortitis
was found to be 25-35 percent more common in autopsied syphilitics, while evidence of central nervous system syphilis was found in 4 percent of the patients.
IgG4-related systemic disease and lymphoplasmacytic aortitis
But there's another dangerous form of cardiovascular disease that women should have on their radar: aortitis
Coronary arterial narrowing in Takayasu's aortitis
We report a patient with WAS and extensive aortitis
causing severe aneurysmal dilatation in the everywhere of the aorta who underwent successful first stage operation involving replacement of ascending aorta.
