Abstract

The coexistence of two immune-mediated diseases in the same patient is unusual. Takayasu’s arteritis (TA), which is a chronic granulomatous vasculitis, was discovered in a 47-year-old woman followed for tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis syndrome (TINU syndrome). We present the first case of this association.
