Abstract

Temporal arteritis is a difficult disease to diagnose. The key to early recognition of temporal arteritis lies in the physician's awareness of this entity and in considering temporal arteritis in the differential diagnosis when any elderly patient presents with multiple and nonspecific complaints. We are hereby reporting three case histories which illustrate a broad spectrum of possible presentations of temporal arteritis. Following is a discussion regarding temporal arteritis, its management and differential diagnosis.
