InBuerger's disease also called thromboangiitis obliterans the blood vessels become inflamed, swell, and can become blocked with blood clots.
Buerger's disease, pathologically named Thromboangiitis Obliterans (TAO) has for long remained a disease difficult to understand due to the various theories ascribed to its pathogenesis and lack of consensus regarding accurate diagnostic criteria.
Thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO), or Buerger's disease, is a rare nonatherosclerotic disease that affects the medium and small arteries.
These include anxiety; psychotic episodes; rapid or slowed heartbeat; chest pain; low blood pressure; fainting; kidney damage (tubular necrosis); and inflamed arteries and veins in the hands and feet (thromboangiitis obliterans).
Other causes of CMI include fibromuscular dysplasia, vasculitis (Takayasu's arteritis, giant cell arteritis, polyarteritis nodosa, systemic lupus erythematosus, and thromboangiitis obliterans), malign tumors, and radiation.
They observed anti-centriole autoantibodies in a 49-year-old patient with acute thromboangiitis obliterans, several vascular risk factors and associated features of collagen vascular disease.
Some differential diagnoses of this condition include cold agglutinin disease, thromboangiitis obliterans, diabetic gangrene, and thromboembolic gangrene [7, 10, 14].
Thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO) or Buerger's disease (BD) is a thrombotic occlusive, nonatherosclerotic segmental inflammatory disease that causes ischemia in small and medium vessels in the extremities of the limbs.

Other vasculitides of consideration included polyarteritis nodosum and thromboangiitis obliterans.
Eligible patients were men and women 18 to 65 years of age with atherosclerotic Ischemic Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) or Thromboangiitis Obliterans (TAO)/Buerger's disease of the lower extremities defined as ischemic pain at rest and minor tissue loss and ischemic ulcers or gangrene, which may be dry or humid, with Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) [less than or equal to] 0.6 or ankle pressure [less than or equal to] 60 mmHg or TcP[O.sub.2] [less than or equal to] 35 mmHg in the foot, without acceptable options for revascularization.
