Abstract

The landscape of the investigation and management of Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA) is advancing. In this review we will outline the recent advances by searching the current English literature for relevant articles using key words of Giant Cell Arteritis; temporal arteritis; Horton’s disease; investigation; and treatment. Delay in diagnosis, diagnostic uncertainty and glucocorticoid (GC) morbidity are among the highest concerns of clinicians and patients in this disease area. The positive news is that fast track pathways, imaging techniques and new therapies are emerging for routine management of GCA. Future directions for intervention in the treatment paradigm will be discussed.
