Following publication of the original article , the authors reported an error. The incorrect sex-specific incidences of GCA were published. The correct mean annual cumulative incidence was 22.0 (95% CI 20.6–23.5) for women and 10.5 (95% CI 9.5–11.5) for men; p-value < 0.001 unaffected by the error. Revised versions of Fig. 2 and Table 2 are provided in this correction. Additionally, in the results section (page 4, first section) we report results of a sub-analysis of an extended cohort (n = 881). The correct annual cumulative incidence for women in this group was 24.1 and for men 11.6.
