Takayasu arteritis is type of vasculitis that usually affects the aorta and its major branches. While coronary involvement is seen infrequently, treatment strategy is less clear. Here, we report a case of a 45 year-old woman with Takayasu arteritis who underwent a Y-graft coronary bypass surgery four years previously. We present the long-term follow-up this patient, with a literature review, and we discuss treatment strategies.
