Treatment for CSS

I suffer from ANCA positive vasculitis, they think a crossover of GPA/CSS and I am currently on 6 monthly Rituximab and Prednisilone but it is not controlling my symptoms. I am considering Methotrexate or Mycohenolate alongside it and was wondering if others have had success with these combinations or any problems in terms of side effects/infections.

I do know of one or two diagnosed with GPA who have had RTX plus Methotrexate alongside the RTX.

You say you have a cross over of GPA and CSS , many of the symptoms of CSS can be very similar but with CSS the Eosinophil's are raised.

Refractory CSS can be very difficult to treat and manage even by the best hospitals. Hopefully you are being seen by one of the well known hospitals.

The VUK hard copy newsletter has been sent out today by post and there are two articles about CSS (EGPA) in this edition.

Best wishes
