Takayasu’s arteritis (TA) is a rare, systemic, inflammatory large-vessel vasculitis of unknown etiology resulting in a granulomatous inflammation of the aorta and its major branches. It most commonly affects the women of childbearing age. Pulmonary artery involvement is very rare. We, hereby, report a case of TA presenting with fever and hemoptysis due to pulmonary artery involvement.
