Abstract

A case of giant cell arteritis presenting in an atypical fashion with respiratory and upper limb ischaemic symptoms is described. The subclavian and axillary arterial involvement is demonstrated in this case, and followed up with repeated angiographic examinations over the next 3 yr. Despite resolution of all symptoms and return of pulses and a recordable blood pressure in the ischaemic upper limb, there was no angiographic evidence of resolution of the axillary artery stenosis.
