Aortic dissection is a rare manifestation of Takayasu's aortitis. We report a patient of Takayasu's aortitis who presented with severe intermittent claudication of the thigh and buttock region due to the dissection of abdominal aorta. Patient was managed by implantation of self expanding stents in the abdominal aorta. Patient continues to be asymptomatic on follow-up of eleven months.
