Temporal Arteritis


A systemic disease of people over 50 years old. It is characterized by a necrotizing panarteritis with granulomas and giant cells, which produce unilateral headache and tenderness in the scalp over the temporal or occipital arteries. Erythema and the affected artery become evident as a hard, pulsating, tender bulge under red or cyanotic skin. Scalp gangrene may also be present. (From Andrews' Diseases of the Skin, 8th ed, p971)
