Vasculitis Genetics

Post by Momcat » Fri Jan 08, 2010 1:19 am

Interesting-it seems to be saying that they are finding at least one vasculitis that is associated with auto immune disorders/rheumatoid arthritis and others that are associated with genetics of a single line in a family. We should be finding more out about KD and these links soon I hope.

Thank you for posting this. It just so happens that I have Behcets and my son has Kawasaki's. My doctors at the NIH have told me there might be some correlation but it is nice to finally see a study.

Thanks
Cyndi
