Takayasu's disease is a rare inflammatory disease of unknown etiology that affects the large vessels, particularly the aorta and its major branches. A case of 29-year-old patient received for surgical management of severe aortic insufficiency was reported. Preoperative clinical and paraclinical investigations revealed a dilatation of the ascending aorta associated with a stenosis of the left subclavian artery and an inflammatory syndrome. This patient underwent a successful Banhson operation. Pathological analysis of the surgical specimen confirmed the diagnosis of Takayasu disease. In conclusion, aortic valve replacement combined with ascending aorta replacement performed in an inflammatory context was successful. However, it requires monitoring to detect complications related to tissue fragility.
Key words: Takayasu disease, aortic insufficiency, aneurysm.
