Abstract: Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common vasculitis in the elderly. Common presenting symptoms include cranial ischemic complications, constitutional manifestations and polymyalgia rheumatica. Facial and cervical edema is increasingly recognized as an inaugural sign of GCA. We present a case with tender facial and cervical edema as the dominating symptom.
