Takayasu arteritis is a chronic inflammatory arteriopathy of unknown etiology affecting large vessels, particulary the aorta and its main branches. We experienced a case of Takayasu arteritis type III in a 9 years old girl. The diagnosis was made by physical examinations and digital subtration aortography(DSA) which showed occulsion of left subclavian artery and left renal artery and stenosis of abdominal aorta. Medical treatment and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty(PTA) were performed. A brief review of literatures was made.
Key Words: Takayasu arteritis, Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty(PTA), Digital subtraction angiography(DSA)
