Abstract

Current therapy has transformed the prognosis of the systemic vasculitidesfrom diseases that had a high acute mortality rate to chronic relapsing diseases with high rates of morbidity. This improved survival has highlightedthe need for better methods of monitoring disease activity and recording the accumulation of organ damage that occurs during the course of the disease. Several clinical indices have been developed that record disease activity, damage and the extent of disease. These validated indices allow a detailed assessment of the patient's response to therapy and provide an essentialtool for insuring uniformity of patient monitoring in multicentre trials. In addition, more data are now available supporting the use of these assessment tools as prognostic and outcome criteria for clinical studies. The development, properties, application and inter-relationships of the available clinical assessment tools for patients with systemic vasculitis are reviewed in this chapter.
