Clinical analysis was made of ten cases with impaired circulation in the vessels originating from the aortic arch. Nine of the patients were women, aged 23 to 64 years, and one was a 39-year-old man. Clinical investigations revealed that the etiologic basis of the condition may vary. In one patient pseudoxanthoma elasticum and in two others more generalized vascular lesions gave rise to the syndrome, one of these latter patients possibly having polyarteritis nodosa. In two other cases congenital vascular anomalies appeared to be a predisposing factor. In the remaining patients, a rheumatic etiology was considered as the most likely basis for the vascular changes in the brachial arteries. All of these patients had vascular diseases at various distances from the aortic arch and without definite involvement of the cerebral circulation. It is debatable whether these cases represent early stages or mild variations of pulseless disease. Such a process may subsequently proceed centrally with or without thrombosis and produce a symptom complex similar to that observed in earlier reported cases.

    Hypertension is a syndrome characterized by persistent elevation of blood pressure. Its incidence in children is lower than in adults; it changes from 1 to 3%. It may be primary or secondary; the secondary type mostly is caused by renal diseases. We describe the normal ranges based on the fourth...
