In 1830, Rokushu Yamamoto, who practised Japanese oriental medicine described the first case of Takayasu’s arteritis. In 1905, Mikito Takayasu reported a case of a 21 year old woman with characteristic fundal arteriovenous anastomoses as “a case of peculiar changes in the central retinal vessels.” In 1905, Onishi and Kagosha reported cases associated with absent radial pulses.
