Abstract:
The practices of medicine and surgery are inherently and irrevocably entwined. This case report highlights the need for an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to care of the modern patient. Our patient fulfils the traditional Ishikawa's criteria and the modified Ishikawa's criteria for the clinical diagnosis of Takayasu's disease. Her case underpins the need for co-ordinated care and careful periodic review of the symptomatology and signs of the multiple clinic attendees.
