Interesting Images: PDF Only

A case of Takayasu's arteritis with pulmonary artery involvement was reported. Pulmonary artery involvement was first detected by ventilation/perfusion imaging, which showed ventilation/perfusion mismatch of the right lung, and was confirmed by pulmonary arteriography. Pulmonary artery involvement of Takayasu's arteritis is one of the disease processes causing ventilation/perfusion mismatch.
