A forty-five-year-old man presented with visual symptoms due to an intracranial aneurysm. Progression of his disease was documented by two subsequent arteriograms. A detailed postmortem study revealed that an inflammatory process involved the major brandies of the aorta and the intracerebral arteries. This idiopathic arteritis was associated with both destructive and aneurysmal changes in certain vessels and intimal occlusive thickening in others. Idiopathic panarteritis is compared with giant cell arteritis and pulse-less disease.
