Giant cell arteritis with visceral angiitis

Arch Intern Med. 1976 Oct;136(10):1157-60.

Abstract

We describe a case in which giant cell arteritis coexisted with microscopic polyarteritis nodosa and focal-local glomerulonephritis. We also review previous cases of renal abnormalities in giant cell arteritis. We believe that this association of inflammatory renal disease and giant cell arteritis has not been documented in the past.
