Figure 2 :(a) Aortitis restricted to the ascending aorta. There is annular dilatation and commissural separation, especially the one between the non-coronary and right coronary cusps (black arrow). There was clinical valvular regurgitation. White arrows indicate ostial stenosis, right more than the left (MV mitral valve, LV left ventricle); (b) Commonest pattern of involvement, tree-barking seen in the ascending, arch and descending thoracic segments
