Inflammatory Aortic Disease (Aortitis) Share. Email. Print. The aorta is the largest artery in the body. It rises from the heart's left ventricle (the major chamber that pumps blood out of the heart) and is filled with oxygen-rich blood that travels throughout the body. When this artery becomes inflamed, the condition is known as aortitis. Pathophysiology and Classification. Aortitis is the pathologic term for inflammation of the aortic wall. The classification of aortitis broadly includes underlying rheumatologic and infectious diseases, along with isolated aortitis (Table 1).The most common rheumatologic causes of aortitis are the large vessel vasculitides, giant cell arteritis (GCA) and Takayasu arteritis, . Aortitis is inflammation of the aorta, sometimes causing aneurysm or occlusion. Aortitis is rare, but potentially life threatening. Its reported incidence is 1 to 3 per one million/year. Aortitis is caused by. Connective tissue disorders (eg, Takayasu arteritis, giant cell arteritis, ankylosing spondylitis, relapsing polychondritis). Aortitis refers to a general descriptor that involves a broad category of infectious and non-infectious conditions where there is inflammation (i.e. vasculitis) of the aortic wall. The presentation is non-specific with fever, pain and weight loss. Gornik HL, Creager MA. Circulation. ; (23): Circulation (full text) - doi

The inflammatory process may cause aortic dilatation, aneurysms, and valvular regurgitation and may spread to the aortic ostium branches, leading to arterial hypertension, absent peripheral pulses, and end-organ ischemia.
