Subsequently, rituximab was approved in 2011 for the treatment of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (in which antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies and myeloperoxidase are involved) and microscopic polyangiitis
(in combination with glucocorticoids).

interjectum cutaneous infection with surgical intervention alone in a patient with microscopic polyangiitis

Exclusion of ANCA associated vasculitis such as microscopic polyangiitis
(MPA) and atypical presentations of giant cell arteritis (GCA) which may give rise to similar presentations is important when arriving at the correct diagnosis.
