PODCAST: Overcoming diagnosing and treatment challenges in ANCA-associated vasculitis

Thursday, 15 Jul 2021

While ANCA-associated vasculitis can be described, in short, as damage to small blood vessels, there is a whole raft of different manifestations and symptoms to unravel to get to a diagnosis. The skin may be involved, as may the heart, kidneys, lungs, sinuses, the eyes, ears and nervous system – with management strategies dictated by the extent and severity to which organs are involved.
