Abstract

The authors reviewed the changes of mucopolysaccharides in 14 cases of syphilitic aortitis. The results are as follows: 1. The hyaluronic acid and heparin-heparitin content decreases and chondroitinsulphate accumulates in the aortic wall. 2. The mucopolysaccharides deposited in the aorta are markedly depolymerised and the molecular weight of certain fractions is considerably lower than in other pathological conditions. The changes in quantity and polymerism of mucopolysaccharides differ from those observed in other conditions and are "specific" for syphilitic aortitis.
