12 Possible Causes for Unequal Blood Pressure in the Arms

  • Subclavian Steal Syndrome

    Abstract Subclavian steal syndrome (SSS) is a clinical entity characterized by brachial and basilar insufficiency as a result of critical proximal subclavian artery stenosis or occlusion. We report a patient of giant hypervascular thyroid nodule presenting with features of SSS. The left hand ischemia and symptoms of[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Takayasu Arteritis

    Takayasu arteritis is a rare, chronic large vessel vasculitis of unknown etiology which predominantly affects women younger than 40 years of age. Symptoms are highly variable based on the location and extent of the stenosis, arterial occlusion, aneurysm, and thrombosis. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dissecting Aortic Aneurysm

    JAMA. 1976 Oct 11;236(15):1725-7. Abstract A patient with a dissecting aneurysm of the ascending aorta had fever of unknown origin. Although his clinical picture included a number of classical features of his disorder, these were initially misinterpreted, largely because fever was the patient's chief complaint.[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Myocardial Infarction

    Aortic dissection is suggested by back pain, unequal palpated pulse volume, a difference of 15 mm Hg between both arms in systolic blood pressure (BP), or a murmur of aortic[doi.org]
