PURPOSE: Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a non-specific, chronic, inflammatory panarteritis, affecting the aorta, its major branches and pulmonary arteries. The percutaneous or surgical revascularization in these patients is often difficult and challenging because of diffuse and multi-vessel involvement, difficulty in management of disease activity, and high rate of restenosis and re-intervention. CASE REPORT: We report a 33-year-old man, a case of TA with fulminant active disease and multi-vessel involvement. His disease activity could not be suppressed with steroid treatment. He had multiple sequential bailout interventions of carotid, left main coronary and mesenteric arteries secondary to cerebro-vascular event, angina and mesenteric ischemia, respectively. CONCLUSION: Despite comprehensive multi-specialty approach in management and also the global revascularization, he ultimately died of acute mesenteric ischemia. To our knowledge, there is no similar type of case being published in world literature till date.
