Abstract

Two cases of giant-cell arteritis of uterus were found incidentally in association with uterine prolapse. One similar case has been reported in the literature. Microscopic examination disclosed fragmentation of the elastic laminae of the myometrial arteries with a giant-cell and mononuclear infiltrate. The relationship between giant-cell arteritis of the uterus, temporal arteritis, and polymyalgia rheumatica is discussed in view of similar cases reported in the literature.
