Abstract

Temporal arteritis, a vasculitis, affects the large- and medium-sized arteries. This disorder has a largely unknown etiology and mainly occurs in older patients. Headache is the predominant symptom with diplopia usually appearing shortly after. Clinicians must be aware of temporal arteritis because blindness occurs in up to 50% of untreated or misdiagnosed patients.
