Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a systemic vasculitis predominantly found in individuals of Northern European ancestry over 50 years of age. Typically it presents with new-onset persistent headache, claudication of jaws, and existence of an abnormal temporal artery. However, the diagnosis of GCA and the assessment of its activity remain challenging, especially in patients presenting with a variety of non-specific symptoms and laboratory tests. In those cases, 18F-fluorodeoxy-glucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG-PET) is useful for the diagnosis of GCA. Recently, the number of foreign patients who visit domestic hospitals for medical care is increasing in Korea. Here-in, we report a Russian patient who was admitted to our hospital with fever of unknown origin (FUO). FUO study was performed to search for infection or malignancy and GCA was suspected by 18F-FDG-PET. The patient was eventually diagnosed with GCA by random temporal artery biopsy.
