A 71-year-old man with Beh●et’s disease was admitted to our hospital for treatment of a thoracic aortic aneurysm. On admission, there was marked inflammatory response, but blood culture was negative and there was no significant accumulation of gallium scintigraphy. The aorta was shaggy and there were two aneurysms in the descending aorta. We performed endovascular aortic repair for this aneurysm in consideration of the inflammatory aortic aneurysm. After treatment, the patient had paraparesis, however he underwent physical rehabilitation to regain function. He was followed up for 1 year and remains in good clinical condition without anastomotic aneurysm, dilatation or aneurysm at another site. Jpn.
