Pulmonary vasculitis conundrums

Abstract

Pulmonary vasculitides represent a diverse group of diseases typified by nonspecific signs and symptoms with evidence of systemic extra-pulmonary organ involvement, including skin, kidney, and neurological systems. No single confirmatory diagnostic laboratory test exists; therefore the clinician must combine a thorough history and physical examination with other objective findings to make the correct diagnosis.
