Two sisters with the familial form of Takayasu's arteritis are reported. In one, angiographic studies revealed not only the expected extracranial large vessel disease but also extensive intracranial vascular pathology.

The progression of the disease and its response to therapy were followed with serial digital intravenous angiographic studies.
