Abstract

Most studies looking at seasonal variations in giant cell arteritis (GCA) note a seasonal trend, but show disparity on timing. Concurrent peaks of GCA and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) have been described by some studies questioning a common precipitating agent. We aimed to analyze the seasonal variation of GCA and PMR in the US using a large inpatient database.
