U radu je prikazana 18-godišnja bolesnica s obostranom stenozom bubrežnih arterija i renovaskularnom hipertenzijom u sklopu Takayasu arteritisa. Takayasu arteritis kronični je arteritis nepoznate etiologije koji zahvaća aortu i njene ogranke. Bolest se javlja u mladih žena, češće u zemljama istočne Azije nego u zemljama Zapada. Takayasu arteritis je često teška i smrtonosna bolest, a mortalitet i morbiditet ovisi o proširenosti vaskularnih lezija sa sljedstvenim ishemijama. U liječenju se primjenjuju glukokortikoidi sami ili u kombinaciji sa citostaticima (ciklofosfamid, azatioprin, metotreksat). U većine bolesnika pravovremenom primjenom tih lijekova postiže se djelomična remisija.

The disease is the most common in young women and is more common in the countries of eastern Asia in comparison with Western countries. Takayasu’s disease can be severe and lifetreating disease. Mortality and morbidity depend on both the direct effect of the vascular lesions and the complications od disease.

In the majority of cases, the partial control of disease is obtained.
