A 50-year-old man who suffered from dyspnea on effort with hearing loss was referred to our hospital. Computed tomography angiography revealed a giant 90-mm diameter ascending aortic aneurysm with severe calcification and neck vessel occlusion. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed moderate-to-severe aortic re-gurgitation. His condition was diagnosed as Takayasu arteritis and he underwent aortic valve reimplantation with total arch replacement. Postoperative computed tomography angiography showed complete aneurysm re-section and the patient was discharged without any complications and his hearing loss improved. He is currently being followed up as an outpatient.
