Takayasu's arteritis (TA), also known as "pulseless disease", is the third most common vasculitis in childhood. It is a chronic, idiopathic, granulomatous vasculitis that involves large vessels. It occurs most commonly in females with a 4:1 ratio over males; the average age of appearance is 26 years. Its cause is unknown. Here we report the case of a 7 year old girl, with type III TA according to the Numano classification, in the ischemic phase, treated with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents and early angioplasty due to the severity of the disease. The outcome was satisfactory. The diagnosis of TA in children under 10 years of age is made only in 2% of them. The delay in diagnosis reaches a mean of 19 months. The course of the disease is variable despite surgical and immunosuppressive treatment.
