My wife have been complaining about shortness of breath, fatigue, headache and when we saw doctors she had no pulse. Doctors immediately take CT angiogram and diagnosed with takayasu type 1. Although her ESR and CRP is normal.
the CT show that her both subclavian arteries and proximal auxiliary arteries have absent contrast opacification which means 100% blocked with distal collateral formed. And her basilar artery and vertebral arteries have streaky contrast opacification.
The doctors said there is no surgery to be done as the subclavian arteries are blocked 100% .
But one thing that was show is that her inflammatory indicators are normal like ESR and crp, heart function normal, liver function normal.
I need opinion is it takayasu or other types of vasculitis.
