Abstract :
We present two case reports of young women with Takayasu arteritis and cardiovascular complications. The first case is a female patient suffering from significant aortic valve regurgitation, the second case is a woman who presents with amaurosis fugax and develops acute chest pain with heart failure. In this report we review cardiac involvement in Takayasu arteritis.
