Abstract

Takayasu arteritis with coronary artery involvement is rare and its association with secondary cardiac hypertrophy with severe outflow tract obstruction is not common. We describe a case of Takayasu arteritis, diagnosed 10 years ago, whose coronary artery involvement and obstructive cardiac hypertrophy are ascertained after our investigations.
