The fourth case of focal (isolated) arteritis of the breast is reported. The lesion, which may be unilateral or bilateral, presents as a painful or tender mass and has been confused clinically with carcinoma. Arteritis, either necrotizing or granulomatous, may occur as an isolated phenomenon restricted to a solitary organ; it does not necessarily imply concurrent or subsequent systemic vasculitis.

    Takayasu arteritis is a devastating vasculitis of the aorta and its major branches. The clinical manifestations in paediatric patients are less specific than in adults: in children the disease presents with fever, arthralgias and hypertension. Intramural inflammation results in narrowing of the...

    Temporal (giant cell) arteritis is a chronic vasculitis of large and medium sized vessels which usually occurs in individuals above 50 years of age. In patients less than 50 years temporal artery vasculitis is extremely rare. The clinical presentations of the vasculitis in younger patients...

    Objective. Recently, a new consensus algorithm for classification of ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) and PAN had been proposed by Watt et al. for epidemiological studies. In order to evaluate this algorithm, the current study used the algorithm to reclassify the patients with AAV and PAN in our...

    Giant cell arteritis remains the most common systemic vasculitis in patients over the age of 50. Headache is the most common symptom, but is not invariably present. The headache may take almost any form, and may resemble any of the primary headaches, even cluster. Prompt diagnosis is important...
