BACKGROUND: The discovery of antineutrophil cytoplasm antibody (ANCA) makes the early diagnosis of primary vasculitis possible, and also has important guiding significance for the diagnosis and treatment of secondary vasculitis. This study aimed to investigate the clinical significance of ANCA.

MATERIAL AND METHODS: ANCA was detected by indirect immunofluorescence assay (IIF), and anti-myeloperoxidase (MPO) antibody, and anti-proteinase 3 (PR3) antibody were detected by ELISA. The results were analyzed retrospectively.

RESULTS: Among 118 730 patients, a total of 5853 (4.93%) were positive for ANCA. In the positive cases, 3.98% were male and 6.33% were female, with significant differences (χ²=123.38, P<0.01). For ANCA, the department with the highest positive rate (15.06%) was the Department of Rheumatology, followed by 7.78% in the Department of Dermatology, 6.79% in the Department of Nephrology, and 5.72% in the Department of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Anti-PR3 and cANCA were highly specific in primary vasculitis (P<0.01). Anti-MPO and pANCA had high specificity for other autoimmune diseases (P<0.01).

CONCLUSIONS: ANCA has important guiding significance for vasculitis-related diseases. Therefore, it is important in the diagnosis and treatment of this disease and has value in clinical practice.
