Abstract

Giant cell arteritis is a systemic granulomatous large-vessel vasculitis of the aorta and its branches. The inflammatory process in giant cell arteritis may result in large-Artery stenosis and tissue ischemia. While this most often involves the upper extremity arteries, in rare cases, lower extremity arterial involvement from giant cell arteritis has also been described. Clinicians should be aware of the different presenting manifestations of large-vessel vasculitis like giant cell arteritis and its evaluation and treatment.
