Question

IS THERE ANY SUCH DISEASE AS TEMOPORAL ARTHRITIS?

Answer

I believe you are referring to Temporal Arteritis, also known as giant cell arteritis, is an inflammatory condition affecting the medium-sized blood vessels that supply the head, eyes, and optic nerves. Check out the Johns Hopkins Vasculitis Website for an in-depth discussion.
