A Rare Cause of Multiple Pseudoaneurysms of Radial Artery After Coronary Angiography: Behcet's Disease

Turk Kardiyol Dern Ars. 2019 Jul;47(5):410-412. doi: 10.5543/tkda.2018.73184.


Patients with Behçet's disease are at risk for iatrogenic aneurysms after interventions. Presently described is the case of a 55-year-old male with multiple pseudoaneurysms occurring in the late period after a coronary angiography procedure performed via the radial artery. There was no previous diagnosis of vasculitis. Behçet's disease was revealed to be the underlying pathology.
