Abstract

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a well-reported form of large-vessel vasculitis that primarily affects the aorta and its major branches. Cardiac manifestations of TA have been reported and can include typical angina secondary to coronary artery involvement; however, typical angina in the setting normal coronary arteries is uncommon. We describe a case of typical angina in a patient with TA with normal coronary arteries secondary to diastolic hypotension, in the absence of significant aortic regurgitation, likely from poor aortic distensibility and elevated left ventricular end-diastolic pressure.
