    Default A very nice introduction to Wegners and some other vasculites

    Haven't seen this clear info before, very nice pictures etc:

    Vasculitis: Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis and Microscopic Polyangiitis

    "Prevalence of GPA in New Zealand is similar to that in Norway, suggesting that incidence of GPA in the southern hemisphere may be reciprocal to its incidence in the northern hemisphere.3,4"

    So is Weg more common in the hemispheres?
    Diagnosed 08/2013, Relapse 07/2014, Relapse 5/2017 (although early signs of it from 12/2016)

    Yes, it is similar to some other diseases which seem related to climate somehow. Some diseases seem more prevalent in tropical areas and some in the cooler areas.
