Polymyalgia rheumatica and temporal arteritis commonly present for the first time in older people. Guidelines for diagnosis, investigation and management are available but have largely been developed by rheumatologists from studies where older people have been excluded. It is not clear whether geriatricians care for a group of patients with different clinical presentations compared to those under the care of other clinicians. There is a need for further prospective studies and randomised controlled trials to clarify a host of outstanding issues to improve the care of older people with polymyalgia rheumatica and temporal arteritis.
