    In many populations giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common form of vasculitis. Genetic markers, ethnic factors, and increasing age over 50 years appear to enhance susceptibility and an infection may trigger its onset. Recent investigations provide evidence that the vasculitic reaction is...
