Abstract

  Patients with Giant Cell Arteritis may have arterial aneurysms in large vessels. When the presence of atheromatous plaques in the vascular walls is added, the risk of aortic dissection is significantly increased. Therefore, chronic follow-up of patients is essential, with periodic imaging tests that detect these anomalies early.
