We report on a patient with Takayasu's arteritis with coronary artery involvement who developed late stent malapposition 2 years after drug eluting stent implantation in the left anterior descending artery. Due to progression of the aneurysm on angiographic follow up, a covered stent was deployed. Problematic aspects of percutaneous coronary interventions in these patients are discussed.
