Giant Cell Arteritis: Temporal Artery
A 70 year-old woman developed headache, jaw claudication, scalp tenderness and visual changes. Low- and high-power cross sectional images of her temporal artery show diffuse panmural mononuclear cell infiltration with luminal narrowing due to intimal proliferation. The absence of giant cells does not exclude the diagnosis of giant cell artertitis.
