    Microscopic polyangiitis was recognized in 1923

    Dear Editor,

    In the paper "EULAR points to consider in the development of classification and diagnostic criteria in systemic vasculitis" [1] it is stated that microscopic polyangiitis (MPA) was described in 1948 [2]. In fact, the first description of MPA I know of is considerably older than that, dating back to 1923 [3].
