Two hundred and twenty five patients of Takayasu's arteritis were studied over 13 years. Male:Female ratio was 1:7. Mean age of the study population was 19 +/- 4 years. Of these 225 patients, 75 patients had symptoms and/or signs of cardiac involvement and these patients were subjected to coronary angiography. Significant coronary artery occlusion (i.e. more than 50% narrowing of luminal diameter) was present in 9 patients. Incidence of coronary artery lesions in Takayasu's arteritis is 12% in this study. The proximal segments of coronary arteries were involved while the distal segments were spared. Out of 34 patients with angina pectoris, only 3 patients had significant coronary arterial narrowing.
