Takayasu's arteritis is an uncommon disease. A case of Takayasu's arteritis in a young soldier is reported, who presented with generalized weakness, easy fatigability and claudication of upper limbs. On clinical examination the brachial and radial pulses were absent bilaterally while carotids were palpable. Doppler studies and angiogram confirmed occlusion of right and left subclavian arteries.
