Giant Cell arteritis(GCA)
A new headache occurs in at least two-thirds of patients. Headache may have a variety of presentations in GCA, but its critical feature is that it is new. Although headache is the chief complaint in many patients presenting with GCA, in some this symptom must be elicited by direct questioning.
The classic GCA headache
is located in temporal regions. However, GCA headaches
may also occur in frontal or occipital areas or be generalized. The headaches may become progressively worse but can also wax and wane, sometimes subsiding temporarily before treatment is started
