OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to describe our experience with tocilizumab (interleukin 6 receptor antagonist) treatment in children with Takayasu arteritis and to review previous studies regarding tocilizumab use in Takayasu arteritis patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We reviewed the charts of all pediatric Takayasu arteritis patients followed up between 2000 and 2015 in Department of Pediatric Rheumatology in Hacettepe University, Ankara, Turkey, and we present the patients who were treated with tocilizumab...

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a large vessel vasculitis that involves the aorta, its major branches and pulmonary arteries. Diagnosis of TA during childhood remains challenging due to the non-specific symptoms. We report a four-year-old girl presenting with fever, fatigue, weight loss, and elbow pain who was later diagnosed as childhood TA. On admission, she had fever, hypertension, decreased pulses, bruits, hepatosplenomegaly, and increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein level. Computed tomography angiography showed luminal narrowing and wall thickening in ascending aorta, brachiocephalic, left common carotid and left vertebral arteries and descending aorta...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the performance of the Birmingham Vasculitis Activity Score (BVAS) v3 and the Disease Extent Index (DEI) for the assessment of disease activity in 4 primary childhood (c-) systemic vasculitides. METHODS: Patients fulfilling the EULAR/PRINTO/PRES (Ankara) c-vasculitis classification criteria for Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), childhood (c) polyarteritis nodosa (c-PAN), c-Wegener's granulomatosis (c-WG) and c-Takayasu arteritis (c-TA) with disease duration at the time of diagnosis ≤3 months were extracted from the PRINTO database...

OBJECTIVES: To validate the previously proposed classification criteria for Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), childhood polyarteritis nodosa (c-PAN), c-Wegener granulomatosis (c-WG) and c-Takayasu arteritis (c-TA). METHODS: Step 1: retrospective/prospective web-data collection for children with HSP, c-PAN, c-WG and c-TA with age at diagnosis <or=18 years. Step 2: blinded classification by consensus panel of a representative sample of 280 cases. Step 3: statistical (sensitivity, specificity, area under the curve and kappa-agreement) and nominal group technique consensus evaluations...

OBJECTIVES: To report methodology and overall clinical, laboratory and radiographic characteristics for Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), childhood polyarteritis nodosa (c-PAN), c-Wegener granulomatosis (c-WG) and c-Takayasu arteritis (c-TA) classification criteria. METHODS: The preliminary Vienna 2005 consensus conference, which proposed preliminary criteria for paediatric vasculitides, was followed by a EULAR/PRINTO/PRES - supported validation project divided into three main steps...

UNLABELLED: Takayasu's arteritis (TA) and ulcerative colitis (UC) are chronic inflammatory diseases of unknown aetiology, and their coexistence is very rare. A 14-year-old Turkish girl presented with abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and weight loss. UC was diagnosed based on physical examination and laboratory investigations and was confirmed by colonoscopic biopsies. TA developed approximately 1 year later, and was diagnosed with angiography performed for ongoing severe abdominal pain in spite of well-controlled UC...

OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively evaluate the clinical features, angiographic findings, and outcomes of children with Takayasu arteritis (TA) in Turkey. METHODS: Clinical, laboratory, and angiographic findings and outcomes of 19 children with TA were evaluated with a retrospective chart review. The criteria for inclusion were those proposed by the American College of Rheumatology. RESULTS: Mean followup period was 35.89 +/- 40.75 months (range 1-168, median 30)...

OBJECTIVE: To review the results of our treatment protocol in the last 7 years. STUDY DESIGN: Six patients (4 girls, 2 boys) with an age range of 12 to 17 years were diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis (TA) during this period. Patients were allocated to receive (1) oral steroids and methotrexate (MTX) (12.5 mg/m(2)/week) if they had disease limited to one side of the diaphragm only without pulmonary disease involvement (two patients); and (2) oral steroids and oral cyclophosphamide (CYC) (maximum total dose 150 mg/kg) followed by oral MTX for maintenance as above if the disease was more widespread (four patients)...

There has been, for many years, a need for an acceptable classification of childhood vasculitis as well as criteria for classifying specific sub-categories of vasculitic disease affecting the young. Hitherto, there has been, with certain exceptions, much reliance on adult classification systems and criteria that have not proved entirely satisfactory. A recent International Consensus Conference held in Vienna in June 2005 attempted to rectify this state of affairs. It resulted in a new proposal for childhood vasculitis classification and proposals of classification criteria for several important categories of childhood vasculitis including Henoch-Schonlein purpura, Kawasaki disease, polyarteritis nodosa (with additionally definitions for cutaneous and microscopic polyarteritis), Wegener granulomatosis and Takayasu arteritis...

AIM: The aims of this study were to evaluate the characteristics of childhood vasculitides and to establish the first registry in Turkey, an eastern Mediterranean country with a white population. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A questionnaire was distributed to the main referral centers asking for the registration of the Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) patients in the last calendar year only and 5 years for other vasculitides. Demographic, clinical, and laboratory data were assessed...

BACKGROUND: There has been a lack of appropriate classification criteria for vasculitis in children. OBJECTIVE: To develop a widely accepted general classification for the vasculitides observed in children and specific and realistic classification criteria for common childhood vasculitides (Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP), Kawasaki disease (KD), childhood polyarteritis nodosa (PAN), Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), and Takayasu arteritis (TA)). METHODS: The project was divided into two phases: (1) the Delphi technique was used to gather opinions from a wide spectrum of paediatric rheumatologists and nephrologists; (2) a consensus conference using nominal group technique was held...

The common vasculitides of childhood are more self-limited than those in adults. Clinical evidence suggests that infectious agents may have a significant role in the aetiology of these diseases although exact pathogenic mechanisms are not known. One of the most frequent of such diseases in childhood is Henoch-Schönlein purpura. The controversies regarding the management of gastrointestinal and renal disease and suggested treatments are reviewed. The limitations of current definitions for polyarteritis nodosa are discussed and a new classification tree for this disease is introduced...

The aetiology of Takayasu's arteritis is unknown, but an association with tuberculosis has been reported. We report the case of a 12-year-old-boy with Takayasu's arteritis: his blood pressure was 150/90 mmHg and fundoscopic examination showed grade I hypertensive changes. A tuberculin test was positive and acid-fast bacteria were seen in the urine. Angiography revealed involvement of the descending aorta, thoracic aorta and upper abdominal aorta, with fusiform enlargement and no filling of the left renal artery...
