1 post in this topic

Systemic Vasculitis In Progressive Systemic Sclerosis: The Frequency, Severity And Stages Of Vasculitis In Various Organs - A Retrospective Clinicopathologic Study Of 11 Autopsy Patients. The high prevalence (incidence) of vasculitis and vascular changes in the lungs, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, and heart should warn to carefully evaluate the clinical and laboratory evidence pointing to involvement of these organs in SSc. The frequently involved gastrointestinal tract may be a good target for biopsy to confirm the presence of systemic vascular changes (and consecutive submucosal fibrosis) in SSc patients. M. Bély. AB0496 EULAR 2007. (Also see: Vasculitis))
