Clinically cannabis arteritis is very similar to Buerger’s disease and the reported differences in pathological lesions are not very convincing [ 25 uberger. In addition to these variable and non-specific pathological findings, TAO can be distinguished from other types of vasculitis based on its tendency to occur in young male subjects, its close association with tobacco bueerger, the rarity of systemic signs and symptoms, a highly cellular thrombus with relative sparing of the blood vessel wall, the absence of vuerger acute-phase reactants and of immunological markers.

The generation of hypervolaemia has been proposed but there is no evidence that expanding plasma volume improves blood flow to the ischaemic limb [ 38 ]. The recent decline in the incidence of TAO has been more apparent than real and has most likely been related to initial over-diagnosis of the disease based on recognition of its status as a distinct entityfollowed by underdiagnosis based on scepticism concerning its status.
