Abstract

Giant cell arteritis is the most frequently occurring primary vasculitis in European and North American adults over the age of 50 years. It usually presents with constitutional symptoms like fatigue, malaise and fevers with a temporal headache. We present a series of three interesting cases of the disease, discuss the differential diagnosis and review the literature on the same.

Keywords: Vasculitis, Giant Cell arteritis, Temporal Arteritis.
