Abstract

Objective: To report the association of temporal arteritis and enhancement of the dura mater and temporalis muscle. Design and Methods: A single patient with a complaint of headache and diplopia was studied. Setting: Academic medical center. Patient: A 69-year-old man presented with lateral rectus weakness, temporal artery tenderness, and an erythrocyte sedimentation rate of 65 mm/h. Intervention: Biopsy of temporal artery and dura mater. Main Outcome Measures: Brain magnetic resonance imaging and pathological findings. Results: Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain showed multifocal dural enhancement and enhancement of the temporalis muscles. The temporal artery showed a necrotizing vasculitis and the dura showed perivascular inflammatory cells. Conclusion: It is proposed that the temporal arteritis caused the multifocal dural enhancement and temporalis muscle enhancement on magnetic resonance imaging.
