Temporal arteritis is an immunological disorder mostly affecting the elderly population. This frequently occurs in association with other rheumatological diseases of the elderly. The symptoms of Temporal arteritis overlap with other symptoms of commonly occurring diseases in that population. Focal pachymeningitis in association with temporal arteritis is a rare finding and a literature review revealed less than ten cases of similar associations being published. In such instances, this finding can be mistaken for aseptic meningitis and treated erroneously. We present our case, discuss the management and summarize a review of literature about focal pachymeningitis along with temporal arteritis which was managed successfully with steroids and Toclizumab.
