Abstract

The pulmonary manifestations of Takayasu's arteritis (TA) are frequently overshadowed by the systemic circulation involvement. We describe a patient who presented with life threatening complications of unrecognized proximal pulmonary arterial disease that mimicked thromboembolic disease. We review the literature on pulmonary involvement in TA, and discuss the use of imaging studies in this disease.
