Caption: Takayasu's arteritis. Coloured 3d computed tomography (CT) angiogram of the arteries of the neck and head of a 56-year-old patient with Takayasu's arteritis. Takayasu's arteritis, or pulseless disease, is a rare, inflammatory disease of the aorta and its branches. Stenosis (narrowing) of the arteries in the arms can lead to an absence of a wrist pulse. This disease can result in aneurysms (weakenings of artery walls), which can be fatal in the aorta. The cause is unknown, but treatment involves taking cortocosteroid drugs, such as prednisone, and surgery for repairing any aneurysms.
