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.
