Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a granulomatous vasculitis and targets large vessels with predominance for the aortic arch and the cranial branches. GCA with cranial symptoms shows headache, jaw claudication, and ophthalmologic symptoms and thus was previously called temporal arteritis. Recently, cases of GCA without cranial manifestations and extracranial GCA have been reported.
