The ­authors ­report a ­rare ­case of Takayasu’s arter­itis ­with ­aortic ­arch and abdom­inal ­aorta involve­ment asso­ciated ­with Crohn’s dis­ease of the ­colon ­which ­both ­occurred in a ­young ­female ­patient. The coex­is­tence of two ­immune medi­ated dis­eases in the ­same sub­ject is ­unusual for ­they are gen­er­ally con­sid­ered to be inde­pen­dent of ­each ­other, how­ever a hypoth­esis of ­their pos­sible inter­re­la­tion­ship is put for­ward.
