We provide a wide range of services to cover all aspects of general rheumatology including inflammatory joint disorders, connective tissue diseases and vasculitides.
Vasculitides is the plural of the word vasculitis, which may be used to describe any disorder characterized by inflammation of the blood or lymph vessels.
The term juvenile vasculitides is sometimes used to refer to a group of disorders that primarily affect children and adolescents.
The most common childhood vasculitides are Kawasaki syndrome (sometimes called Kawasaki disease) and Henoch-Schönlein purpura.
The most widely used classification scheme for the vasculitides was first proposed at an international conference in 1994.
