Figure 1: (a) Cerebral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showing infarction of the left frontal and parietal lobe (arrow); (b) swollen, tortuous and tender right superficial temporal artery of the patient (arrow); (c) doppler ultrasound revealing significant thickening of the intima and decreased blood flow in superficial temporal artery (arrow); (d) computed tomographic angiography (CTA) images showing thickening of the vessel wall of the thoracic aorta (arrow); (e) CTA images showing occlusion of the right common iliac artery and severe stenosis of the left common iliac artery (arrows); (f) 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (PET) scan showing increased tracer uptake in the ascending aorta, thoracic aorta, abdominal aorta, bilateral vertebral arteries, subclavian arteries, axillary arteries, common iliac artery, right internal iliac artery and bilateral femoral arteries, suggesting inflammation in the vessel walls (arrows); (g) 3-dimensional reconstruction of the CTA images of the thoracic and abdominal aorta showing occlusion of the right common iliac artery and severe stenosis at the beginning of the left common iliac artery (arrows)
