Abstract: We report an 80-year-old woman presenting with a posterior circulation infarct secondary to temporal arteritis. The clinical and laboratory features were atypical. This case highlights the importance of having a low threshold for considering a temporal artery biopsy as accurate diagnosis, and prompt intervention may improve outcomes.
