RAMOS ZAYAS, Ana et al. Lingual necrosis as a debut of giant cells arteritis: case report. Bibliographic review. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2020, vol.42, n.1, pp.32-35.  Epub May 04, 2020. ISSN 2173-9161.

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common vasculitis in our country. Its clinical manifestations are widely well-known. However, atypical forms of this disease are less studied and potentially dangerous. Lingual necrosis is a rare ischemic complication of GCA that can simulate other disorders. The aim of this article is to present a new case of lingual necrosis as debut of GCA and review the described literature about it.

Keywords : Tongue necrosis; giant cell arteritis; vasculitis.
