Abstract

We report the case of a giant cell arteritis (GCA) in an 81-year-old man who presented with headaches and a decreased general condition associated with an important inflammatory syndrome in laboratory analysis responding to corticotherapy. Color-duplex ultrasonography (CDU) features of temporal arteries obtained with a high frequency probe permits us to underline the typical radiological presentation of this disease.
