Is it worth differentiating various overlap syndromes? How can one improve on the classification and treatment i}f.vasculitis? Two questions - what is the patient telling us? and what can we do for the patient? are always central to the discussion. Although these high-minded ideals are often not fulfilled, frequently something new appears to come from individual case presentations. These cases, discussed at our weekly conferences, were contributed by a number of different staff members.
