FINN, Bárbara C. et al. Simultaneous multiple myeloma and giant cell arteritis without systemic amyloidosis. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2006, vol.66, n.6, pp. 555-557. ISSN 1669-9106.
Primary systemic amyloidosis with clinical and histopathologic features of giant cell arteritis has already been described. The association of multiple myeloma (with primary amyloidosis) and giant cell arteritis is also known. We present the first case in the literature of a patient with multiple myeloma and giant cell arteritis without systemic amyloidosis, suggesting a pathogenic relationship between the two diseases.
