Giant cell arteritis and polymyalgia rheumatica. Review for the otolaryngologist.
Patients suspected of giant cell arteritis or polymyalgia rheumatica are often referred to the otolaryngologist for temporal artery biopsy. These patients may initially present to the otolaryngologist with symptoms referable to the head and neck. A comprehensive review of these two interrelated disorders is provided, with emphasis on head and neck manifestations and features of obtaining the temporal artery biopsy specimen.
