The aim of this study is to develop new diagnostic and classification criteria for the different types of primary vasculitis.

Medical Condition(s)

Primary systemic vascuitis including Wegener’s granulomatosis (also known as granulomatosis with polyangiitis), giant cell arteritis, Churg-Strauss syndrome (also known as eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis), microscopic polyangiitis, Henoch Schönlein purpura, cryoglobulinemia, polyarteritis nodosa, Kawasaki's disease, Takayasu’s arteritis, Behçet’s disease, relapsing polychondritis, primary CNS vasculitis and their disease mimickers.
