Abstract

Aortitis and saddle nose deformity are extremely unusual manifestations of a variety of systemic diseases. The concurrent appearance of these apparently disparate clinical features is a clinical rarity. A case of saddle nose deformity in a patient with confirmed Takayasu's arteritis is presented. The relevant literature is reviewed with reference to the possible differential diagnosis of patients with aortitis and saddle nose deformity.
