We herein report on a 29-year-old woman who presented with edema and proteinuria. In light of her blood pressure differences and, finally, with the angiographic findings, Takayasu arteritis (TA) was the diagnosis. Renal biopsy showed focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and other possible etiologic alternatives were excluded. This was a very rare association and we could not find any other cases reported on TA accompanied with FSGS before. A poor treatment response was observed at the end of a 1-year therapy.
