Abstract
The prospects for patients suffering from systemic small vessel vasculitis have improved substantially in recent decades. The introduction of cyclophosphamide in the 1970s led to a dramatic improvement in survival rates. The discovery of ANCA meant a substantial increase in the number of detected cases, especially among elderly patients, as well as detection at an earlier stage of disease. At the beginning of the 1990s consensus was reached to change the classification of vasculitis, providing a framework for international multicentre studies. Now that results from such studies are available, at least some decisions regarding the care of vasculitis patients can be considered to be evidence-based.
