Giant-cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic vasculitis of the elderly usually involving the ophthalmic arteries, which can result in visual loss. High platelet counts may have some pathogenic significance in the obstruction of the ophthalmic circulation and a few cases of associated essential thrombocythaemia and GCA have been described. Here we report a case of severe temporal arteritis associated with essential thrombocythaemia.

Abstract

Giant-cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic vasculitis of the elderly usually involving the ophthalmic arteries, which can result in visual loss. High platelet counts may have some pathogenic significance in the obstruction of the ophthalmic circulation and a few cases of associated essential thrombocythaemia and GCA have been described. Here we report a case of severe temporal arteritis associated with essential thrombocythaemia.
