Tuberculous arteritis of the aorta is an uncommon condition usually secondary to the dissemination of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection from the mediastinum and/or lung to the adjacent aorta; this may mimic Takayasu's arteritis. Aortoarteritis is an inflammatory condition of the aorta, which has been rarely reported due to tuberculous infection. We are presenting a case of 28-year-old young female of abdominal aortoarteritis along with tuberculosis (TB). Patient was treated with anti-TB therapy and steroids.
