Abstract

Our findings reveal that TA lesions mostly develop in a symmetric manner in paired vascular territories and that disease extension is contiguous in the aorta. This may prove useful for improving the radiologic followup of patients with TA and for providing a pattern for further investigations focusing on the mechanisms of vessel specificity in vasculitides.
