Is it customary to have ulcers associated with these arteries/veins with TA ?
I have what appears to be a pimple on the top of my head that keeps coming back - I recently saw a rheumatologist who thinks I have temporal arteritis and wants to do a biopsy of a cerebral vein. Is it customary to have ulcers associated with these arteries/veins with TA ?
Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Ulcers are not commonly seen unless there is skin damage. Temporal arteritis presents with one sided headache and possible vision disturbance. It is not known to cause ulcers.
