Abstract

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) may cause visually devastating optic neuropathy. In atypical cases, diagnosis of optic neuropathy can be delayed. We present 2 such atypical cases and demonstrate that contrast-enhanced orbital magnetic resonance imaging may be a valuable tool in patient evaluation and aid in the diagnosis of GCA.
