In brief: Temporal arteritis

I assume you mean temporal arteritis.
Temporal arteritis is a condition in which the temporal arteries, which supply blood to the head and brain, become inflamed or damaged. It is also known as cranial arteritis or giant cell arteritis. Although this condition usually occurs in the temporal arteries, temporal arteritis can occur in almost any medium to large artery in the body.
