    Abstract

    The sensation of facial swelling in temporal arteritis may be an important predictor of the development of visual disturbance. A clinical report of two patients who developed a sensation of puffiness of the face without altered facial appearance, as a presenting symptom of temporal arteritis with visual disturbance is presented. This symptom, though documented previously by us, has not been identified before as a predictor of visual disturbance.
