목통증 환자에서 경동맥 초음파에 의해 처음 발견된 타카야수 동맥염
Abstract
Early symptoms of Takayasu’s arteritis are similar to other systemic conditions, then the diagnosis is difficult and often overlooked. Young female patient presented recurrent neck pain and heating sensation during four years. Palpable enlarged lymph nodes in the left neck and mild tenderness was found. A Carotid ultrasound examination was taken, that showed homogeneous, echogenic, concentric wall thickening in the both common carotid artery. After additional studies, we could diagnose as Takayasu’s arteritis. Carotid Doppler ultrasonography may be useful for providing information about the vessel wall and diagnosing Takayasu’s arteritis in patients with recurrent neck pain.
