Abstract

Takayasu is a challenging large vessel vasculitis to diagnose and treat. Takayasu mostly occurred in young women, and its most common symptoms are pulselessness in limbs, hypertension, and claudication. In our case, we have an unusual presentation. A young woman with a history of IBD came to our clinic with pulselessness, coldness, edema and allodynia in lower limbs. In the investigations, an imaging diagnosis of Takayasu vasculitis was confirmed.
