Summary: The systemic vasculitides are a group of disorders which are of increasing importance. Many of these conditions are only rarely encountered by general physicians and often present significant diagnostic challenges. Our goal in writing this short book was to provide easily accessible information in a pocket-sized format. We hope we have helped both the g- eral rheumatologist who only encounter these problems occasionally. We have focused on clinical presentation, di- nostic processes, and current
management. We hope, the- fore, that we will help our patients with these potentially devastating conditions by improving diagnosis and therapy. Richard A. Watts Ipswich, UK David G. I.
