Churg-Strauss syndrome, primary angiitis of the central nervous system, and Takayasu’s arteritis are complex primary vasculitic diseases that are managed by rheumatologists. In recent years, a number of important developments have occurred in rheumatologists understanding of these uncommon but life-threatening vasculitides. It is important for the rheumatologist to understand these recent advancements in Churg-Strauss syndrome, primary angiitis of the central nervous system, and Takayasu’s arteritis and how to apply these to patient care.
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
- describe the similarities and differences for the management of asthma and vasculitis in Churg-Strauss syndrome
- recognize how to differentiate primary angiitis of the central nervous system from other central nervous system diseases
- identify the role of different imaging techniques in Takayasu’s arteritis and how useful they are in assessing disease
