In 1983 Churg's (5) publication entitled "Pulmonary Angiitis and Granulomatosis Revisited" included a discussion of NSG that included 32 cases, 12 of which were the cases reported (2) in 1979, 9 of which were the cases reported in the 1979 addendum, and 11 of which were cases that had not been previously reported.

Giant cell arteritis can be differentiated from necrotizing sarcoidal angiitis by the lack of granulomatous inflammation in the myocardium outside of the coronary arteries, the lack of granulomatous inflammation in other organs outside of the arteries, and the demographics of the patient because giant cell arteritis is primarily a disease of elderly white women, unlike sarcoidosis.
