Abstract

Takayasu's arteritis is a rare form of aortic vasculitis, typically described in young Asian females. In this article, we report a unique presentation of type V Takayasu's arteritis in a Hispanic male. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case of Takayasu's arteritis presenting with the triad of angina, amaurosis fugax, and subclavian steal syndrome. On diagnostic imaging, he was found to have left subclavian and axillary artery stenosis requiring balloon angioplasty. The patient responded to the combination of medical and surgical treatment with full recovery.
