Methods and Materials

A. Coronary involvement of Takayasu’s arteritis  ;  10-30% of Takayasu’s arteritis patient

• Type I : Stenosis or occlusion of the coronary ostia and the proximal segments of the coronary arteries (most common) [Fig.1 &2]

• Type II ; diffuse or focal coronary arteritis, which can extend diffusely to all epicardial branches or can involve focal segments, so-called skip lesions [Fig.3]

• Type III ; coronary aneurysm [Fig.4]


B. Cardiac sequalae of Kawasaki vasculitis [Fig. 5-8]

• Coronary artery dilatation, premature atherosclerosis, stenosis (4.7%), thrombosis, or occlusion with myocardial infarction (1.9%)

• In most cases, within 3-6 months of the acute illness

• In some cases, may develop as many as 10-21 years after the acute phase of the disease

• Coronary artery aneurysm or coronary artery ectasia develops in 15%–25% of untreated children with Kawasaki disease, 5% after     γ- globulin treatment.
