Abstract

INTRODUCTION - Takayasu's atteritis is an idiopathic inflammatory disease of the great elastic arteries, mainly of the aorta and its primary branches. It primarily affects young women. CASE REPORT - A 20-year-old woman presented with general inflammatory symptoms that had begun 3 to 4 months before. Earlier she underwent a biopsy from a mass on the neck thought to be a lymph node, which on histopathological examination turned out to be a non-necrosing granulomatosis in the wall of a large artery. Based on this finding as well as on the presence of fever, weight loss, carotid murmur, anaemia, elevated platelet count, increased sedimentation rate, the lack of pulse and the findings of imaging examinations, Takayasu's arteritis was diagnosed. Treatment was started with high-dose steroid monotherapy, which resulted in clinical and laboratory remission after a short time. The imaging findings (neck soft tissue sonogram and MRI) also showed improvement, however, a moderate but definite disease activity was still present, thus steroid treatment was supplemented with azathioprin. CONCLUSION - It is important to follow the disease both clinically and with imaging techniques for an early recognition of the need for changing or adjusting the treatment.
