PMID:  3581845     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Aortic aneurysmal disease appears to be the central focus of the inflammatory process resulting in inflammatory aneurysm formation. Some authors believe that inflammatory aortic aneurysm disease is a distinct clinicopathologic entity; however, others have included it with retroperitoneal fibrosis. The histologic features of inflammatory aneurysm suggest an immunologic basis for the lesion, with the atherosclerotic aorta as a possible source of the allergen.
