Abstract

Systemic vasculitides are a group of diseases that could potentially affect any organ with heterogeneous clinical manifestations that usually depend on the size of the most involved vessels. These diseases could be associated with a relevant burden of mortality and morbidity if not early recognised and treated. Moreover, even if they are usually rare diseases, their incidence and prevalence seem to be increasing in the last decade, partially because of improved awareness and management of vasculitis from physicians. Like in the previous annual reviews of this series, in this paper we revised the most recent literature on pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and treatment options in small- and large-vessel vasculitis.
