A-16-year-old male adolescent with a 4-year history of protean clinical manifestations such as fever, abdominal pain, back pain, erythema nodosum and uveitis developed complete occlusion of left renal artery. Although he had been suspicious of having an autoimmune disease and treated with prednisolone, a definite diagnosis was not made. Finally, an angiography disclosed stenosis of abdominal aorta just beneath the origin of the renal arteries as well as complete occlusion of left renal artery. It has been reported that pediatric-onset Takayasu's arteritis sometimes shows protean clinical manifestations as in ours. Takayasu's arteritis should be considered as one of the underlaying disease, when a child develops protean manifestations suggesting an autoimmune disease.
