Temporal arteritis is a disorder in which giant cell arteritis or temporal arteries which is the blood supplier for the brain and head, becomes damaged or inflamed. It is also referred to as giant cell arteritis or cranial arteritis. This condition commonly occurs in temporal arteries, and it may occur in any medium to large artery of the body. As this condition commonly occurs in elderly people, it is also called arteritis of the aged. Other names of temporal arteritis includes Horton disease, arteritis cranialis, and granulomatous arteritis. It is the most common type of systemic vasculitis in adults. Etiology of temporal arteritis was unknown up until now but it may linked with the autoimmune system of the body. Also, higher dose of antibiotics and various severe infections have been linked with temporal arteritis. There is no prevention or treatment available till now for temporal arteritis. However, after diagnosis of temporal arteritis it can be treated by minimizing complications.

Diagnosis of temporal arteritis is done by physical examination of the head, and also several test use for diagnostic purpose such as liver function test to determine proper functioning of liver, haemoglobin test to measures haemoglobin level in blood, or to detect oxygen-carrying protein in blood, haematocrit test to determine bloods with RBC cells, erythrocyte sedimentation rate test to measure sedimentation rate (high sedimentation rate indicate inflammation in body part), and C-reactive protein test to measure level of protein.
