Scope note: Trastorno autoinmune sistémico que afecta típicamente a las ARTERIAS medias y grandes y lleva por lo general a vasculitis granulomatosa oclusiva con infiltrado transmural que contiene CÉLULAS GIGANTES multinucleadas. Es típica la afectación de la ARTERIA TEMPORAL. Este trastorno se da principalmente en personas de más de 50 años de edad. Los síntomas incluyen FIEBRE, FATIGA, CEFALEA, trastornos visuales, dolor en la mandíbula inferior y en la lengua y agravamiento del dolor por temperaturas frías. (Adams et al. Principles of Neurology, 6th ed).

Scope note: A systemic autoimmune disorder that typically affects medium and large ARTERIES, usually leading to occlusive granulomatous vasculitis with transmural infiltrate containing multinucleated GIANT CELLS. The TEMPORAL ARTERY is commonly involved. This disorder appears primarily in people over the age of 50. Symptoms include FEVER; FATIGUE; HEADACHE; visual impairment; pain in the jaw and tongue; and aggravation of pain by cold temperatures. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed)
