Takayasu’s arteritis is a chronic inflammatory vascular disease of unknown etiology that affects the aorta, proximal parts of its major branches, and the pulmonary arteries. It is a typical “large-vessel” nonatherosclerotic vasculitis, which can produce vascular stenosis, aneurysm formation, and other presentations in the aorta or affected vessels.
