A patient with Takayasu arteritis (TA) with marked ischemia of the retina and choroid underwent successful treatment with stent implantation. The left common carotid artery was markedly narrowed. However, the left subclavian artery showed narrowing at its ostium and proximal segment with narrowing at the origin of the left vertebral artery. The patient underwent left subclavian balloon angioplasty with left vertebral artery stenting. This led to drastic resolution of micro-aneurysms and improvement of vision. Stenting for hypo-perfusion of ophthalmic circulation in cases of TA has rarely been reported, and to our knowledge, this is the rare case report of improved clinical and visual outcome following stent placement.
