It presents with stenotic lesions of the aorta and its branches, although aneurysmal presentation is rare. A 62-year-old woman with Takayasu arteritis was admitted with complaints of abdominal pain and bilious vomiting for two days. She had a history of stenting of the right renal, superior mesenteric, and celiac artery. Computed tomography revealed a superior mesenteric artery pseudoaneurysm. Surgery was decided and it was successfully repaired. In conclusion, although rare, aneurysms of the superior mesenteric artery should be kept in mind in patients with Takayasu arteritis.
