Authors: Younger DS
The epidemiology of vasculitis has witnessed extraordinary advances in the past decade influenced by the worldwide increased recognition and accurate classification and diagnosis of the vasculitides, and insights brought by genome-wide association studies and online genetic biological repositories that permit researchers to freely access a wide array of genetic and clinical resources that contribute to the understanding of the heritable factors of the systemic vasculitides. This article reviews the current knowledge of the epidemiology of vasculitides in different global regions.
