    00:00 Time for a quick review. This is available in your downloaded material, but I want you to try and match all of those different vasculitides on the right hand column and find where they should go on this schematic shown here. Okay, quick review question. Again, I'll ask a question, feel free to pause the screen and then un-pause it when you're ready to hear the answer. Glucocorticoids are first line treatment for all of these vasculitides except...Alright, polyarteritis nodosa, use use steroids. Giant cell arteritis, use steroids. Kawasaki disease, you're going to use IVIG. It's one of the few instances where we wouldn't use steroids. Takayasu's, GPA, also steroids. The answer, #3, Kawasaki disease. And that's it for vasculitis guys.
