Abstract

Takayasu arteritis is a vasculitic condition which affects large and medium sized vessels primarily aorta and its main branches. It is a rare condition affecting females more than males between 10 and 40 years of age with spectrum of clinical presentation. Here we present a case of 58 year old man who presented to us with non-specific gastrointestinal symptoms who was eventually diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis.
