Polymyalgia Rheumatica/Giant Cell Arteritis

The diagnosis of an older patient with musculoskeletal pain can be a true challenge for all of us. Take into consideration associated illnesses that pose an even greater threat, and all of our clinical skills are needed to point the care of the patient in the right direction. The presentation and clinical approach to polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and giant-cell arteritis (GCA) provide just such a challenge. Diagnosis, treatment, and further concerns are reviewed in this course.
