This is a report of two patients, one having polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and another with giant cell arteritis
(GCA). Both the patients had raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein and were consuming
high w-6/w-3 fatty acid ratio diet. Both responded to prednisolone. Low w-3 ratio diet or fish oil should be considered for
prevention of recurrence.
