Cardiff Teaching - previous

Here's an example of some slides uploaded.

This was an interesting case of a patient with suspected GCA that was given oral steroids on day 1 but still developed a new AION on day 3 despite oral steroids. We then started IVMP and this made the AION worse!

Did the steroids ironically cause a hypercoaguable state - as has been reported before? or is this the natural history of the GCA and should we have just given IVMP from day 1 ?
