Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis (AAV) refers to a group of rare autoimmune inflammatory conditions that affect small- and medium-sized blood vessels in the body.

This article features interviews with four key opinion leaders on the topic of AAV, who offered their perspectives on current key challenges associated with the disease and its understanding.
