ABSTRACT
This case study is presented mainly in order to illustrate the decisive information acquired through angiography in the diagnosis of Takayasu's disease, a condition which remains relatively rare. Only a few demonstrative pictures have been published in reports on the existence, site and extent of the basic lesion. The first description of the clinical entity is generally attributed to Takayasu. Various names have been given to the condition and the list of synonyms is surprisingly lengthy. A partial nomenclature includes the following: Takayasu's disease, Takayasu's syndrome, pulseless disease, branchial arteritis, aortic arch syndrome, sortie arch arteritis, reversed coarctation, brachiocephalic arteritis, Martorell's syndrome, chronic sub-cleido-carotid obstruction, arteritis of the aorta in young women.
