Quick Overview
The book has six sections. The first section deals with epidemiology, genetics, and classification of vasculitis syndrome. There are likely to be changes in the classification system once the results of some of the ongoing studies become available, and these can be incorporated in the subsequent editions of the book. The second section deals with basic sciences and discusses the role of neutrophils, antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies, and details skin, nerves and brain, lungs and kidney pathology. The understanding of vasculitis can never be complete without the knowledge of pathology, and hence a special emphasis has been laid down on the details of pathological changes in the areas most commonly inflicted by these diseases. These sections contain innumerable illustrative microphotographs of various pathological changes in different organs and would be of interest to both the clinicians and pathologists. The third section deals with imaging modalities as they have assumed a significant role in diagnosing and assessing disease activity. The fourth section deals with the clinical manifestations based upon organ system. The fifth section has chapters detailing the approach to children and adults with vasculitis and assessing disease activity and damage. Newer therapies have been shown great promise in management of these disorders, thus newer and future modalities have been discussed in this section. The last section deals with the individual vasculitis syndromes. Management of these diseases is a challenge.
