Abstract

This report presents a case of co-occurrence of Takayasu arteritis (TA) and multiorgan tuberculosis (TB) in a 20-year-old female and provides a review of 18 previously reported cases of co-occurring TA and TB. All patients were between 9 and 24 years of age. Most reports describe a concomitant diagnosis of active TB and TA. TB lymphadenitis was described in 11 cases (57.9%), and microbiologically confirmed in 4 of these. All patients received antituberculous therapy and most received corticosteroids (89.5%). In our and two other cases, TA relapses necessitating additional immunosuppressive therapy were observed.
