GCA is the most common form of vasculitis in the adult population, with an annual incidence of 19.8 per 100,000 individuals older than 50 years (1). Disease-related complications include vision loss from arteritic anterior or posterior ischemic optic neuropathy and central retinal artery occlusion. Because of its ocular manifestations, GCA is often diagnosed and managed by neuro-ophthalmologists. However, in addition to vision loss, GCA can have other vascular complications, including aortic… Expand
