Takayasu's disease is characterized by absent upper extremity pulses and ophthalmological finding of secreased visions and catract formation. Clinical features of Takayasu's disease are attributed to an obstructive arteritis of the large vessels criginating from aortic arch and other aortic segments. This dissease most frequently has been reported from Orient, and has affected primarily young females. This is a report of a 10 years old girl who developed the typical clinical and pathophysiological manifestation of Takayasu's disease and we also made brief review of literature.
