Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 79-year-old male presented with symptoms suggesting giant cell arteritis (GCA) and elevation of acute-phase reactants. Bilateral superficial temporal artery (STA) biopsies were negative for GCA. However, the right-sided biopsy showed a STA dissection. Spontaneous isolated STA dissection has never been reported previously. The pertinent available literature is also discussed.
