Takayasu's arteritis associated with interstitial lung disease and glomerulonephritis.

Abstract

Takayasu's arteritis is a vasculitis characterized by inflammation and obliteration of large- and medium-sized arteries and has not been previously associated with interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. A patient with Takayasu's arteritis was shown to have interstitial pulmonary fibrosis and mesangial glomerulonephritis, suggesting a common antigenic stimulus that resulted in tissue injury.
