Abstract
Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a chronic inflammatory condition usually seen in females mainly affecting aorta and its branches resulting in clinical manifestations such as malaise, claudication, and pulselessness. Raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein are important markers of active inflammation other than clinical features associated. Rarely TA may involve coronary and cerebral arteries resulting in myocardial infarctions and cerebrovascular accidents.

Key words: Takayasu Arteritis; Cerebrovascular Accident; Ischemic Stroke
