A Typical Presentation of Takayasu’s Arteritis – Takayasu’s Arteritis: An Approch to Dilated Cardiomyopathy
Background: Takayasu vasculitis is a rare type of large artery vasculitis that predominantly affects the aorta and its main branches; depending on the group of blood vessels involved, signs and symptoms are usually related to systemic inflammation or ischemia of an organ. Increased platelet and coagulation activity are linked to Takayasu arteritis, resulting in hypercoagulability. Based on clinical findings, examinations, and symptom relief with steroids, a young female of 20 years old was diagnosed with Takayasu’s arteritis.
In addition to a clinical examination and imaging studies, laboratory tests like C Reactive Protein and serum ferritin can help confirm a diagnosis of big artery vasculities. This is an unusual case of Takaysu’s arteritis, demonstrating that Takaysu’s arteritis can present in a variety of ways.
Aims and objectives: To improve symptoms by early diagnosis and therapy. To avoid the characteristic Takayasu’s arteritis appearance.
Conclusion: When patients have a high serum ferritin level, innovative proteins should be used in the right clinical situation. The diagnosis of Takayasu Arteritis should be considered, and an echocardiogram should be performed. This could help with the early beginning of suitable treatment.
