A 17-1/2-year-old girl with a thoracoabdominal aneurysm
A 17-and-1/2-year-old girl was admitted to a hospital with a abdominal aortic aneurysm. Aortic aneurysms occur when the wall of the aorta becomes weak and begins to expand outward. She had gone deaf four years earlier and doctors in the hospital discovered that she had symptoms of Cogan's syndrome. These included an eye disease called interstitial keratitis, and an aortic aneurysm. Her aneurysm was surgically repaired and biopsies of aortic tissue taken at that time showed evidence of inflammation. Consequently, she was treated with immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory drugs.
