Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCAs) associated vasculitis is a necrotizing vascular inflammation, usually involving multiple organs. It is one of the major diseases that cause deterioration of renal function rapidly in the elderly. The latest Chapel Hill Consensus Conference 2012 has updated the name of ANCA-associated vasculitis.
