Background: Takayasu vasculitis is a rare type of large vessel vasculitis that primarily affects the aorta and its main branches; signs and symptoms are usually due to systemic inflammation or ischemia of an organ depending on the group of blood vessels involved. Takayasu arteritis is associated with increased platelet and coagulation activity, leading to a hypercoagulable. We report a young female of 20 year old was diagnosed with Takayasu’s arteritis based on clinical features, investigations and resolution of symptoms with steroids. In addition to clinical examination and imaging studies, laboratories studies such as C Reactive protein and serum ferritin may aid in support of a diagnosis of large vessel vasculities. This is a rare presentation of Takaysu’s arteritis which illustrated that Takaysu’s arteritis can have varied presentation.
Aim and Objectives: Early diagnosis along with treatment to improved the symptoms. To prevent the classical manifestation of Takayasu’s arteritis.
Conclusion: In patients with markedly raised serum ferritin, creative proteins in the appropriate clinical setting. Consideration should be given to the diagnosis of Takayasu Arteritis echocardiography should be done. This may aid in early initiation of appropriate therapy.
