About 15% of people with polymyalgia rheumatica also have temporal arteritis and about half of people with temporal arteritis also have polymyalgia rheumatica.

Temporal arteritis causes inflammation that damages large and medium-sized arteries. The name of the condition stems from the fact that some of the affected arteries provide blood to the head, including the temples. Temporal arteritis is also known as “giant cell arteritis.”

Buzz words on the boards are elderly people, usually female, with headache, jaw claudication and vision issues. They will also have shoulder and pelvic pain.

ESR will help make the diagnosis as a preliminary test, yet difitinive test is biopsy.

Treatment is high dose steroids to prevent blindness.
