Hematological Malignancies in Giant Cell Arteritis: a French population-based study.
https://doi.org/10.1093/rheumatology/keab328
Rheumatology (Oxford, England); Greigert H, Mounier M et. al.

Apr 1st, 2021 - An increased risk of hematological malignancies (HM) has been reported in giant cell arteritis (GCA) patients. Our study aimed to investigate the incidence and the type of HM occurring in GCA. All patients with GCA and HM living in Côte D'Or (Fran...

Epidemiology of biopsy-confirmed giant cell arteritis in southern Sweden - an update on...
https://doi.org/10.1093/rheumatology/keab269
Rheumatology (Oxford, England); Stamatis P, Turkiewicz A et. al.

Mar 20th, 2021 - To characterize the epidemiology of temporal artery biopsy-positive (TAB+) giant cell arteritis (GCA), including trends in incidence, seasonal variation, and prevalence in Skåne, the southernmost region of Sweden. All histopathology reports of TAB...

Ultrasonography in the diagnosis and follow-up of Giant Cell Arteritis.
https://doi.org/10.1093/rheumatology/keab179
Rheumatology (Oxford, England); Coath FL, Mukhtyar C

Feb 18th, 2021 - Colour-doppler ultrasonography is the first measure to allow objective bedside assessment of Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA). This paper discusses the evidence using the OMERACT filter. Consensus definitions for ultrasonography changes were agreed by D...

JAMA Ophthalmology; Cohen DA, Chen JJ et. al.

Feb 18th, 2021 - Frozen section temporal artery biopsy (TAB) may prevent a contralateral biopsy from being performed. To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of TAB frozen vs permanent section pathology results for giant cell arteritis (GCA) and determine the ...

Optic neuropathy secondary to perhexiline and amiodarone.
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7843302
BMJ Case Reports; Tan Y, Sia P et. al.

Jan 28th, 2021 - Bilateral optic disc swelling is an important clinical sign for potentially life-threatening and sight-threatening conditions, with the most common being raised intracranial pressure and pseudopapillitis. Perhexiline-related and amiodarone-related...

Frozen Sections Can Guide Biopsies for Giant Cell Arteritis, but Are They Feasible?
https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/946408

Feb 23rd, 2021 - Positive findings from frozen sections of a first temporal artery biopsy can effectively identify giant cell arteritis, ruling out in those cases the need to perform a second biopsy on the contralateral side and arguing against the use of simultan...

Researchers Home In on Optimal Biopsy Length for Giant Cell Arteritis
https://www.staging.medscape.com/viewarticle/936665

Aug 31st, 2020 - A new retrospective analysis has found 1.5 cm to 2 cm to be the optimal length of a temporal artery biopsy for detecting giant cell arteritis. Longer lengths did not yield enough improvement in diagnosis to justify the increased risk of complicati...
