Abstract

We report an unusual case of Takayasu aortitis associated with a giant cell granulomatous valvulitis presenting with aortic insufficiency. Although nonspecific valvular abnormalities have been reported with Takayasu aortitis, this case is the first to describe involvement of the aortic valve by the disease.
