ABSTRACT
This article informs that giant-cell arteritis is among the most common forms of systemic vasculitis in adults, the incidence is 1 in 5000 among people older than 50 years of age. Giant-cell arteritis is also known as temporal arteritis because it typically affects the cranial arteries. In this study, the investigators wanted to determine the incidence and predictors of large-artery disease in giant-cell arteritis. The study included all the residents of Olmstead County, Minnesota, who had received a diagnosis of giant-cell arteritis in the past 50 years.
