Giant cell arteritis is becoming recognized as one of the most common forms of vasculitis. However, its variable presentations and multiple features may make recognition difficult. Early diagnosis and treatment with cortico-steroids can prevent vascular occlusions. The challenge for the clinician is to use the lowest dose that suppresses the disease but also results in the fewest drug-related adverse effects.
