Vasculitis is a rare condition in children, defined as the presence of inflammation in a blood vessel.1-3 Vasculitis can be classified based on clinical phenotypes (organ-specific vs. systemic), underlying causes (primary or secondary disease), histological patterns (granulomatous or non-granulomatous), and primarily affected vessel sizes (based on Chapel Hill and EULAR/PRES classifications) as presented in table 1 and 2.2, 4 This paper provides a classification of childhood vasculitis, focusing on primary systemic vasculitis, as well as the clinical presentation and diagnostic evaluation for the most common vasculitides. 
     The annual incidence of primary vasculitis in children and adolescents is approximately 23 per 100,000 in UK. Primary vasculitis accounts for approximately 2?10% of all pediatric conditions evaluated in pediatric rheumatology clinics.1 There was no incidence data in Indonesia yet. Henoch Sch
