REVIEW
Erdal Sag, Ezgi Deniz Batu, Seza Ozen
Vasculitides are characterized by inflammation of the vessel wall. Most of the vasculitides tend to occur in vessels of a specific size and certain target organs. In this review, we discuss each specific childhood vasculitis according to the latest Chapel Hill Consensus Conference 2012 nomenclature system and the Ankara 2008 classification criteria. We have also reviewed the clinical and laboratory characteristics and the recent treatment recommendations for the vasculitides we encounter in children.

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (formerly Churg-Strauss syndrome) is a rare type of anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibody-associated vasculitis. Nevertheless, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis stands apart because it has features of vasculitis and eosinophilic disorders that require targeted therapies somewhat different from those used for other anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibody-associated vasculitides. Considerable advances have been made in understanding the underlying pathophysiology of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis that have highlighted the key role of eosinophils and opened new therapeutic opportunities...

Renal involvement with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis is a common manifestation of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitides, which is characterized by end-stage renal disease and high mortality rates in untreated and/or late referral patients. The long-term renal survival has improved dramatically since the addition of cyclophosphamide (CYC) and recently of rituximab (RTX) in association with corticosteroids in the remission induction therapeutic regimens. However, renal prognosis remains unfavorable for many patients and the mortality rate is still significantly high...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to describe the evolution of mortality and cause-specific mortality over time in patients with systemic necrotizing vasculitides (SNV), including polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA), and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA). METHODS: Patients with SNV from the French Vasculitis Study Group registry were divided into 5 groups according to the date of diagnosis: <1980, 1980-1989, 1990-1999, 2000-2010, and ≥ 2010...

Antimalarials have been an effective and safe treatment for autoimmune rheumatic diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus for more than a hundred years. There are surprisingly few reports of hydroxychloroquine use in the systemic vasculitides. Hydroxychloroquine has antithrombotic, cardiovascular, antimicrobial and antineoplastic effects, making it a potentially valuable treatment for patients with systemic vasculitis who are at risk of infections, malignancy and thrombotic events. We report the successful use of hydroxychloroquine in patients with ANCA vasculitis, Henoch Schonlein purpura/IgA vasculitis, Takayasu's arteritis and polyarteritis nodosa...

Arthur Chang, Shamim Islam
The etiology and pathogenesis of Kawasaki Disease (KD) remain poorly understood. Amongst the diverse infectious and environmental factors examined to be triggers for, or be associated with KD, are immunizations. In this report, we first describe a Caucasian female who presented with classic KD shortly after receiving her routine 4 month vaccination series. Prior published case reports and large epidemiological studies, which explore potential associations between immunizations and KD and other vasculitides, are then comprehensively reviewed...

Prosthetic valve infective endocarditis (IE) is one of the most serious postimplantation complications. Prosthetic aortic valve IE constitutes 1%-6% of all prosthetic valve IE cases. We present a dramatic echocardiographic case of prosthetic aortic valve IE leading to near-complete valve dehiscence. Echocardiographic evidence of prosthetic aortic valve rocking motion is indicative of significant dehiscence. Aside from IE, other causes and risk factors for prosthetic aortic valve dehiscence include inflammatory and autoimmune vasculitides, concomitant ascending aorta aneurysm, and aortic root calcification...

OBJECTIVE: To compare long-term efficacy of remission-maintenance regimens in patients with newly diagnosed or relapsing antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA)-associated vasculitides. METHODS: The 28-month Maintenance of Remission using Rituximab in Systemic ANCA-associated Vasculitis trial compared rituximab with azathioprine to maintain remission in patients with newly diagnosed or relapsing granulomatosis with polyangiitis, microscopic polyangiitis or renal-limited ANCA-associated vasculitis...

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ANCA) targeting proteinase 3 (PR3) and myeloperoxidase expressed by innate immune cells (neutrophils and monocytes) are salient diagnostic and pathogenic features of small vessel vasculitis, comprising granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), microscopic polyangiitis, and eosinophilic GPA. Genetic studies suggest that ANCA-associated vasculitides (AAV) constitute separate diseases, which share common immunological and pathological features, but are otherwise heterogeneous...

Systemic vasculitides (SVs) is a group of diseases characterised by inflammation/necrosis of the blood vessel wall in various organs. Simultaneous brain and heart involvement is a cause of increased morbidity/mortality in SV. We aimed to present evidence of concurrent brain/heart involvement in SV and the role of a combined brain/heart magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in their risk stratification. Cerebral vasculitis (CV) can be presented as focal deficits, seizures, headache, neuropsychiatric manifestations or cognitive dysfunction and cardiovascular disease (CVD) as myocardial/vascular inflammation, perfusion/function defects and fibrosis...

Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the most common form of the primary large vessel vasculitides and typically occurs in individuals aged ≥ 50 years. This concise review article discusses current trends in the management of GCA, including important developments in sonographic assessment (B-mode sonography, contrast enhanced ultrasound) and medical treatment (biological treatment with the interleukin-6 receptor alpha inhibitor tocilizumab).

Vasculitides with positivity of autoantibodies to neutrophil leukocytes cytoplasm (ANCA, AAV) belong to primary vasculitides involving small and less commonly medium size blood vessels. Three different clinical types of AAV can be distinguished: granulomatosis with polyangiitis, eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis and microscopic polyangiitis. Since these autoantibodies seem to be weak activity biomarkers of AAV new molecules and factors start to come up, e.g. neutrophil extracellular traps NET, several T-lymphocyte subpopulations and different immunoglobulins classes of ANCA...

Kawasaki disease (KD) is one of the most common childhood vasculitides and may lead to coronary arterial complications. KD has been reported in more than 60 countries over five continents. Previous publications have provided a comprehensive description of the epidemiologic features of KD including incidence, age of onset, seasonal trends, and rates of cardiac lesions. However, the interactions among the KD patients, time (seasons) and place have been less well studied. We review the current global epidemiology of KD and focus on the longitudinal changes in incidence, seasonality and response to intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy...

A 14-year-old male teen presented with unilateral episcleritis, unresponsive to topical and systemic corticosteroid therapy, without a history of ocular trauma or evidence for systemic diseases. The presence of foreign bodies in the conjunctival mucus of the hyperemic fornix has been noticed during one of the follow-up examinations. The toxicological analysis of conjunctival mucus revealed the presence of ethylene glycolmonomethyl ether and triethilene glicolebuthyl ether, used as solvents in nail polish removers and all-purpose cleaners...

Spontaneous renal artery dissection (SRAD) is a rare entity with less than 200 cases reported in literature. It usually affects middle-aged men and the clinical presentation is non-specific. Many times it is associated with conditions such as hypertension, fibromuscular dysplasia or vasculitides. We report the case of a patient who initially had renal infarct due to SRAD and then progressed to have bowel ischaemia. The renal infarct preceded bowel ischaemia in this patient and to the best of our knowledge this is the first such association reported in literature...
