Vascular manifestations as extraintestinal symptoms of inflammatory bowel diseases have rarely been reported, More than 10 case reports in the worldwide literature have suggested that Takayasu's arteritis be one of the rare vascular complications in inflammatory bowel diseases. We describe herein a 33-year-old woman with Takayasu's arteritis who was subsequently found to have Crohn's disease. Aortic arch angiogram showed typical findings of Takayasu's arteritis, and the diagnosis of Crohn's disease was made by colonoscopic and radiologic findings, clinical course, and the response to medical therapy. To our knowledge, this is the first case report in Korea. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 17: 860-864, 1997)
