Abstract


Takayasu Arteritis (TA) is a chronic, idiopathic and granulomatous vasculitis of the large arteries. It involves primarily the aorta, especially aortic proximal branches, and occasionally the pulmonary arteries. We report a 10 year old boy with Takayasu arteritis with Rheumatic heart disease who developed congestive heart failure with valvular heart disease mimicking as having infective endocarditis. Complete aortogram revealed narrowing of abdominal aorta, superior mesenteric artery with bilateral renal artery narrowing.
