Abstract
Aortitis is the all-encompassing pathological term ascribed to inflammation of the aorta. Regardless of the etiology, it frequently results in aortic root dilatation and aortic insufficiency rather than aortic stenosis. The rare case of aortitis such as isolated idiopathic aortitis may occur without evidence of systenic inflammatory disease or infection, and usually has subclinical nature. Even though the goals of therapy include immediate treatment of aortic inflammation or infection, the optimal management of isolated idiopathic aortitis is uncertain. We report a rare case of isolated idiopathic aortitis mimicking acute severe aortic stenosis, which was improved after steroid therapy.
