Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a relatively rare type of chronic vasculitis resulting in inflammation and stenosis of medium and large sized arteries. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a common inherited disease that is the principal cause of sudden cardiac death in young people. Patients diagnosed with both TA and HCM have rarely been reported worldwide. To facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of this patient population, here we report the case of a 41-year-old Chinese woman presenting with TA and HCM (Maron III). To our best knowledge, it is the first reported case of a patient with both Takayasu’s arteritis and obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (Maron III) in China.
