Abstract

Having proposed a new classification on angiographic findings of patients with Takayasu arteritis, we evaluated the angiographic findings of 80 Japanese patients and 102 Indian patients according to this classification. Japanese patients showed a higher frequency of involvement of the ascending aorta, aortic arch and its branches than did the Indians (P < 0.01). On the other hand, the frequency of involvement of theabdominal aorta and/or renal arteries was higher in Indian patients (P < 0.01). Type III cases of the new classification which involves thethoracic descending aorta, abdominal aorta and/or renal arteries wereobserved in 3% of the Indian patients, but not at all in the Japanese. In conclusion, in Japanese patients, vascular lesions tend to occur primarily in the ascending aorta, aortic arch and/or its branches and extend into the abdominal aorta. On the other hand, in Indian patients, the tendency is primarily in the abdominal aorta including renal arteries and extending into the thoracic aorta.
