, : Prevalence of Wegener's granulomatosis, microscopic polyangiitis, polyarteritis nodosa and Churg-Strauss syndrome within a defined population in southern Sweden. Rheumatology 46(8): 1329-1337

Objectives. To estimate the point prevalence (p.p.) of Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), microscopic polyangiitis (MPA), polyarteritis nodosa (PAN) and Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) within a defined population in southern Sweden.Method. A cross-sectional p.p. study using multiple sources for case identification. The study area, a healthcare district around the city of Lund in southern Sweden (Mellersta Skanes sjukvardsdistrikt), had, on 31 December 2002, a total population of 287479 inhabitants.
