A case of segmental arterial mediolysis with widespread involvement of cranial and abdominal arteries





Segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) is a very rare, nonatherosclerotic, non-inflammatory vasculopathy of unknown etiology characterized by non-inflammatory degeneration of the medial layer of muscular arteries [1,2]. Inflammatory vasculitis represent the main differential diagnoses. Although, most of the time, arterial involvement concerns only one anatomical site, it can spread to concomitant cerebral and abdominal vessels [3–5]. We report an unusual case of segmental arterial mediolysis with widespread involvement of cranial and abdominal arteries.
