PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Takayasu arteritis has long been considered as an uncommon disease, rather specific to the Far-East; however recent surveys show that the disease can be seen in all ethnicities around the world with increasing prevalence rates. Nowadays, it would not be fair to consider Takayasu arteritis as a rare disease. RECENT FINDINGS: Although involvement of the thoracic aorta and its branches was more common among females, males had a tendency toward limited involvement of the abdominal aorta and its branches...

BACKGROUND: Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a nonspecific chronic inflammation of the aorta and its branches. This study compared the outcomes of surgical treatments including bypass surgery, cutting balloon angioplasty and conventional balloon angioplasty to TA patients exhibiting supra-aortic arterial (SAA). METHODS: This retrospective study was conducted on 42 TA patients, obtained from hospital database, who underwent surgical therapy due to SAA lesions from January 2010 to March 2015...

A 19-year-old male with diarrhea, abdominal pain, fever, and elevated C-reactive protein (CRP) levels was admitted to our hospital. Endoscopic examination and small intestinal contrast radiography revealed multiple longitudinal ulcers in the large intestine and ileum. A specimen biopsied from one of these ulcers revealed non-caseating epithelioid cell granuloma. He also had a draining anal fistula. Plain chest computed tomography (CT) and abdominal contrast-enhanced CT did not reveal any vascular abnormality...

Renal failure and infectious disease are strongly associated with morbidity and mortality in patients with severe generalized recessive dystrophic epidermolysis bullosa (RDEB-sev gen). However, it is reportedly difficult to introduce hemodialysis with an arteriovenous fistula (AVF). We encountered a 32-year-old man with RDEB-sev gen in whom hemodialysis with a native AVF was introduced that favorably affected his long-term survival. This patient eventually died because of cachexia related to the recurrence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma 51 months after hemodialysis introduction...

Spontaneous resolution of the arterial obstruction in Takayasu's arteritis is rarely reported. We reported a case of spontaneous resolution of an obstruction of the left subclavian artery in a young female. The patient underwent a bilateral coronary patch ostioplasty for both coronary ostial lesions complicated by Takayasu's arteritis at the age of 28. Concomitant left subclavian obstruction was seen at that time but left untreated. Surprisingly, the 10-year follow-up angiogram revealed complete resolution of the left subclavian artery obstruction...

Little is known about the obstetrical management of patients with Takayasu arteritis (TA) who have undergone extra-anatomic vascular bypass (EAVB). We describe two cases of EAVB. Case 1 underwent EAVB due to renovascular hypertension associated with stenosis of the abdominal aorta, and Case 2 due to amaurosis fugax episodes associated with stenosis of the brachiocephalic and left common carotid arteries. Pregnancy outcomes were favorable for both cases, though the original symptoms recurred during the third trimester in each case, possibly due to increased blood flow to the pregnant uterus...

We presented a 38-year-old woman suffering from acute cerebral infarction due to arteritis limited to bilateral internal carotid arteries without a condition of giant cell arteritis or granulomatosis with polyangitis. Our case is unprecedented and characterized by a young woman with wall enhancement in the internal carotid arteries on contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), therapeutic effects of steroids, and positive status for human leucocyte antigen-B39, -B51 and -DR4. These disease characteristics were not in accordance with existing diagnostic criteria of vasculitis, such as Takayasu's arteritis, giant cell arteritis, granulomatosis with polyangiitis, and Behcet's disease...

Congenital stenosis/atresia of a coronary artery is an exquisitely rare anomaly (Congenit Heart Dis, 2, 2007, 347) with increased risk of sudden death. Bilateral coronary obstruction is even more unusual but has been reported in conjunction with aortic valve disease, syphilis, and Takayasu's arteritis. To the best of our knowledge, obstruction of both coronaries in a pediatric patient has only been reported once (Ann Thorac Surg, 55, 1993, 1564). We present a patient with an intramural, anomalous aortic origin of the right coronary artery from the contralateral sinus (AAORCA) with near atresia of the left main coronary ostium...

OBJECTIVE: The current standard treatment protocol for patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (GBM) includes surgery, radiotherapy, and concomitant and adjuvant temozolomide (TMZ). We hypothesized that the permeability surface area product (PS) from a perfusion CT (PCT) study is associated with sensitivity to TMZ. The aim of this study was to determine whether PS values were correlated with prognosis of GBM patients who received the standard treatment protocol. METHODS: This study included 36 patients with GBM that were newly diagnosed between October 2005 and September 2014 and who underwent preoperative PCT study and the standard treatment protocol...

Werner syndrome (WS) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a constellation of adult onset phenotypes consistent with an acceleration of intrinsic biological aging. It is caused by pathogenic variants in the WRN gene, which encodes a multifunctional nuclear protein with exonuclease and helicase activities. WRN protein is thought to be involved in optimization of various aspects of DNA metabolism, including DNA repair, recombination, replication, and transcription. In this update, we summarize a total of 83 different WRN mutations, including eight previously unpublished mutations identified by the International Registry of Werner Syndrome (Seattle, WA) and the Japanese Werner Consortium (Chiba, Japan), as well as 75 mutations already reported in the literature...
