We describe a case of Takayasu's arteritis discovered at the early systemic phase. Ultrasonography and computed tomography show thickening of the walls of the superior mesentery and common carotid arteries despite normal findings on angiography. Diagnosis was confirmed by arterial biopsy. We emphasize the importance of noninvasive vascular investigation to support the diagnosis of Takayasu's arteritis.
