Takayasu’s Arteritis (TA) is an uncommon idiopathic large-vessels inflammation damaging large arteries such as the aorta and its main branches. Clinical manifestations vary from asymptomatic, bruits, unpalpable pulse, and catastrophic neurological disorders that may develop into life-threatening conditions. We report a 23-year-old male with pain and swelling from his right forearm to his fourth finger with significant Doppler ultrasonography and CT Angiography findings. Imaging modalities are essential especially in patients with unspecific clinical manifestations. Appropriate and rapid diagnosis is important to prevent permanent organ damage.
