Abstract

Coma is rare in temporal arteritis (TA). We describe a patient with TA who suddenly developed coma with a triphasic EEG pattern that resolved after initiation of steroid treatment. Although the arterial lesions in TA are segmental in nature, TA may present with signs of diffuse neurologic deficit; early treatment can result in complete resolution.
