Musculoskeletal Manifestations in a Population-Based Cohort of Patients with Giant Cell Arteritis.
Arthritis Rheum 42:1259-1266, 1999.
Polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) is characterised by proximal aching and morning stiffness and sometimes arthritis mimicking rheumatoid arthritis.
The authors suggest that PMR be redefined to include not only aching but also its other manifestations of arthritis, swelling of distal joints, edema, tenosynovitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis.
