Prevalence, Correlates and Outcomes of Gastric Antral Vascular Ectasia (GAVE) in Systemic Sclerosis.

 

GAVE is rare and associated with a vascular phenotype, including anti-RNA-polymerase III antibodies, and a high risk of renal crisis. Anemia, usually requiring blood transfusions, is a common complication. Journal of Rheumatology, 12/01/2013. (Also see: Gastric Antral Vascular Ectasia, Renal Involvement, and Anemia of Chronic Disease)
