Radiologic abnormalities in children with Takayasu Arteritis. a. Patient 4 per Table 4 with MRA showing significantly decreased caliber and irregularity of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta, with minimally increased signal characteristics, consistent with inflammatory changes, notably in the proximal descending segment. Patient is status post right sided nephrtectomy with single left renal artery, which appears occluded in its mid segment with patent bypass graft arising from the mid infra-renal abdominal aorta to the left kidney. b. Patient 7 per Table 4 with CTA showing inflammation around the aorta. c. Patient 7 per Table 4 with MRA findings of a mildly prominent proximal ascending aorta, moderately dilated distal ascending aorta, and aneurysmal transverse aortic arch extending into the proximal descending aorta. The largest transverse aortic arch dimension is 30 × 26 mm.
