We describe an unusual case of overlap between Takayasu's arteritis (TA) and systemic sclerosis (SSc). TA has been found in association with several diseases, but not with SSc. To our knowledge this is the first case report of TA associated with SSc in the literature. It is possible that the expression of the two diseases in our patient was influenced by the presence of genetic factors predisposing to both TA and SSc.
