The Route Map for Vasculitis

Vasculitis UK Routemap Front Cover The Route Map is a 128 page document which is a guide to every aspect of vasculitis and living with vasculitis.

It was the result of an 18 month project sponsored by the Department of Health and facilitated by Genetic Alliance UK in 2011/12.

The clinical content was produced by Dr Matthew Morgan, Consultant Nephrologist and Professor Lorraine Harper, both of Birmingham University Hospital. The Route Map was edited by V-UK Trustee Pat Fearnside.

Other contributors to the Route Map are:

  • Dr David Jayne (Fertility and Vasculitis)
  • Dr Catherine Guly (Vasculitis and the Eye) - added May 2013
  • Dr Marcos Martinez Del Pero (Vasculitis and the Ear) - Added May 2013
  • Prof Justin Mason - update of Takayasu Arteritis - 2014
  • Dr Nicola Ambrose and Prof Dorian Haskard - update of Behçet's syndrome - 2014

Also added in May 2013 were two additional vasculitis diseases:

Sections on the following were updated in 2014:

Two new web pages on additional vasculitis diseases were added in March 2016:

When the routemap was first produced in 2013, we created it as a single PDF document (5.7Mb), and you can still download that version if you wish:

But we have decided that subsequent updates to the content are best handled by updating the pages on this website

The Individual Disease pages on the website are updated and monitored regularly and are all listed on this page of the website: http://www.vasculitis.org.uk/about-vasculitis/individual-diseases
