Abstract

This study illustrates the progressive nature of arteriomegaly. Results of the management of these patients in our institution are similar to those in the literature. We suggest an additional fourth category to Hollier's classification that describes arteriomegalic disease without aneurysmal degeneration as this, too, deserves special management. Regular follow-up visits and early intervention for patients with arteriomegaly is advocated to reduce the high incidence of morbidity.
