Summary:

Vasculitis is a condition which affects children and adults, causing symptoms due to impairment of blood flow to organs. There are many types of vasculitis, some seen more often in childhood, and others seen as people age. We would like to evaluated vasculitis that affects children, and the impact of the condition upon their life and jobs. We are also studying how specialists diagnose and treat these conditions, and are working with both adult and pediatric vasculitis experts. We are also planning a database for adult patients with vasculitis, this will include patients who have transitioned from childhood to adult clinics.
