ABSTRACT

Takayasu‖s arteritis is a rare, systemic inflammatory vasculitis of large vessels that usually affects women of childbearing age. Also known as pulseless disease or occlusive thromboaortopathy, the disease is named after the Japanese ophthalmologist who in 1905 described a form of retinal arteriovenous anastomoses due to retinal ischemia caused by large vessel vasculitis. We present here a case of a young female who presented with stroke. The patient had stroke which eventually recovered but now was referred for evaluation of her unrecordable blood pressure.

Keywords: Blood pressure, Stroke, Takayasu‖s arteritis.
