TAKAYASU ARTERITIS Is also known as young female arteritis, aortic arch syndrome, pulseless disease
Takayasu arteritis (TAK) is a rare inflammatory large-vessel vasculitis primarily affecting the aorta and its major branches, but also other large vessels, causing stenosis, occlusion, or aneurysm.
Most common symptoms of TAKAYASU ARTERITIS

SPONDYLOARTHROPATHY, SUSCEPTIBILITY TO, 1; SPDA1
SPONDYLOARTHROPATHY, SUSCEPTIBILITY TO, 1; SPDA1 Is also known as ankylosing spondylitis, susceptibility to, marie-strumpell spondylitis, bechterew syndrome
Spondyloarthropathy (SpA), one of the commonest chronic rheumatic diseases, includes a spectrum of related disorders comprising the prototype ankylosing spondylitis (AS), a subset of psoriatic arthritis (PsA), reactive arthritis (ReA), arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease, and undifferentiated spondyloarthropathy (Miceli-Richard et al., 2004). These phenotypes are difficult to differentiate because they may occur simultaneously or sequentially in the same patient. Studies have suggested that a predominant shared component, including HLA-B27, predisposes to all phenotypic subsets, and that these subsets should be considered as various phenotypic expressions of the same disease (Said-Nahal et al., 2000, Said-Nahal et al., 2001).Braun and Sieper (2007) provided a detailed review of ankylosing spondylitis, including clinical features, pathogenesis, and management.

PULMONARY ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION ASSOCIATED WITH CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASE
PULMONARY ARTERIAL HYPERTENSION ASSOCIATED WITH CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASE Is also known as pah associated with connective tissue disease
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH, see this term) associated with connective tissue disease (PAH-CTD) is a form of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH, see this term) characterized by an elevated pulmonary arterial resistance leading to right heart failure observed as a complication of a connective tissue disease.
