This article cites a medical report of a case of the Takayasu's arteritis (TA) associated with Panhypopituitarism in a 40-year-old black man. This case represents a rare association of TA with panhypopituitarism secondary to tuberculous meningitis and further attests the role of tuberculosis in the etiology of TA. Physical examination of the patient revealed a pleasant young man who looked younger than his stated age. There was absence of facial, axillary, and pubic hair. The right radial, brachial, and axillary pulsations were absent and the right subclavian was barely palpable. There was a thrill over the right carotid artery. Results of aortic arch angiography have shown that There was stenosis of the left common carotid artery at its origin and significant obstruction of the left subclavian artery at its mid-portion. According to the study, the bilateral carotid bruits and absence of right upper limb pulses were the clinical clues in the diagnosis of TA.

    Extremely rarely, a posterior communicating artery (PCoA) of 'duplicate origin' occurs when two branches of the PCoA arise separately from the supraclinoid segment of the internal carotid artery (ICA) and quickly fuse to form an arterial ring. Three such cases previously reported were described...

    Mycotic aneurysms of the internal carted artery (ICA) are rare and often difficult to diagnose. They can have nonspecific signs and symptoms, an unclear etiology, and can lead to severe morbidity and mortality if left untreated. We present a case of a 47-year-old woman with an apparent mycotic...
