Description This is a video of Superficial Temporal Artery Biopsy done under local anaesthesia for a patient who was suspected to have Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA. GCA is vasculitis of the medium sized vessels than can lead to permanent visual loss by causing Arteritis Ischemic Optic Neuropathy. The diagnosis of the disease is suspected by the clinical signs and labrotary investigations ( ESR , CRP, Platelet Count) but must be confirmed by Temporal Artery Biopsy and pathological examination. The treatment of GCA is systemic steroids.
