Following a knowledge management analysis, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) – a medical humanitarian non-governmental organisation (NGO) – identified significant loss of medical knowledge from the field, owing primarily to the absence of a platform on which to share clinical lessons learned in humanitarian and resource-limited settings (HRLS). Wishing to address these missed opportunities to retain important scientific and pragmatic knowledge, the NGO has begun to actively encourage its clinicians...

Background: Visual loss is the most serious consequences of a diagnosis of polymyalgia rheumatic (PMR) and giant cell arteritis (GCA). To date, information on the occurrence of eye disease in GCA has been based almost exclusively on small hospital-based patient series. Furthermore the lack of control group for these studies results in a lack of relative risk estimates for visual loss. There are no accurate data on the prevalence and nature of eye complications among patients in the community. Pa...

OBJECTIVES: ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) can affect all age groups. We aimed to show that differences in disease presentation and 6 month outcome between younger- and older-onset patients are still incompletely understood. METHODS: We included patients enrolled in the Diagnostic and Classification Criteria for Primary Systemic Vasculitis (DCVAS) study between October 2010 and January 2017 with a diagnosis of AAV. We divided the population according to age at diagnosis: 65 years of age displa...

OBJECTIVE: Cutaneous manifestations of anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis (AAV), including granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA), and eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), are poorly characterized. This study describes the dermatologic features of AAV and their association with systemic manifestations of vasculitis. METHODS: A cross-sectional study describing and comparing the cutaneous manifestations of AAV was performed u...

Abstract Objective Renal involvement in anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis is associated with significant morbidity and higher mortality rates. This study examined clinical manifestations associated with renal involvement in ANCA-associated vasculitis within a large, international cross-sectional cohort. Methods Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed to identify clinical factors associated with renal disease, which was defined as i) a serum-creatinine >3...

Both polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR) and giant cell arteritis (GCA) have been associated with an increased future risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).1 However, it remains uncertain whether this is a consequence of inflammatory disease or relates to a common underlying mechanism. Retinal vascular images are a sensitive measures of vascular health, which are emerging as important biomarkers of future cardiovascular risk with changes affecting arterioles and venules.2 In this study, we assess whethe...
