Abstract

Takayasu arteritis is a chronic vasculitis that affects large vessels and causes focal or diffuse thickening of the vessel walls with consequent stenosis, occlusion, or thrombosis. Here, we describe a young lady with Takayasu, which had Internal common carotid artery stenosis and subclavian artery occlusion with focusing on the value of transthoracic echocardiography (2D) in the diagnosis of these complications of Takayasu.
