Abstract

Takayasu's arteritis, is a rare, chronic, idiopathic, inflammatory disease of the large arteries, primarily involves the aorta, its main branches as well as the coronary and pulmonary arteries. It is mostly seen among women with child bearing age group (80%). During pregnancy, the increased intravascular volume impair circulation and exacerbate aortic regurgitation, hypertension, and congestive heart failure. Hypertension is one of the serious complication that can develop, leading to intrauterine growth restriction, maternal heart failure, and fetal haemorrhage and during postpartum period.
