PRS can be caused by a number of diseases but the most common causes include anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) associated vasculitis (AAV), anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti GBM) disease and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis (AAV) is characterized by small-vessel vasculitis, preferentially involving the kidneys, lungs, skin, and nerves.
