The article presents information on pathology of nonspecific aorto-arteritis. Nonspecific aorto-arteritis has been known by a variety of eponymic and descriptive terms such as Takayasu's arthritis, pulseless disease, panarteritis, Martorell syndrome, and young female arteritis. Laboratory features include a high sedimentation rate and abnormal plasma proteins, and high values for C-reactive proteins. Roentgenologic findings are varied and protean, and change during the course of the disease. The importance of visualizing the whole aorta, including the origins of all its branches in both the thorax and abdomen, cannot be overemphasized if one is to correctly determine the extent of the disease.
