Takayasu arteritis is a chronic large-vessel vasculitis that is more frequently observed in young women. We report the case of a 29-year-old woman who required an operation for an aneurysm of the left sinus of Valsalva that ruptured into the left ventricle, for aortic regurgitation, and for left main coronary trunk stenosis. The patient had not been previously diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis.
