Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We would like to invite you to the 2nd EUVAS Vasculitis Course, which will be held in Firenze, 19-21 April 2018. The first edition of the EUVAS vasculitis course was held in Cambridge in January 2017 and covered different aspects of systemic vasculitis, with a focus on ANCA-associated vasculitis. The second course aims to cover small and large-vessel vasculitis, but will also have sessions dedicated to BehĂ§et syndrome and large-vessel involvement in fibro-inflammatory disorders. The course has a primary educational purpose, but will also emphasize â€śwhatâ€™s new in vasculitisâ€ť. It will run over three days, and will comprise plenary lectures on major topics and specific sessions on organ involvement in systemic vasculitis, clinical case discussions, and newer aspects of disease pathogenesis and treatment.
Thanks to the presence of outstanding speakers and chairmen coming from all over Europe and the US, we are sure that the scientific level of the course will be high and that the sessions will be exciting.
Also, Firenze in spring will hopefully be an ideal frame for this course!
Looking forward to welcoming you in Firenze,
Domenico Prisco and David Jayne
Directors of the 2nd EUVAS Course
Organizing Committee and scientific program chairmen
