Takayasu's arteritis - frontal MRI of the abdomen. Takayasu's arteritis ( disease of the pulseless women ) is a rare pathology found in young, mainly asian, women characterized by stenosis of the large and medium-sized arteries, most commonly the aorta. Shown here, inflammatory stenosis of the abdominal aorta. An auto-immune reaction causing inflammation of the vessel walls leads to narrowing and occlusion and the disparition of the radial and carotid pulses. R = right side, L = left side, F = (bottom).
