hi all, looking for some info on anca's.
I tested positive for ANA 1:1280 homogeneous and speckled pattern.
I also tested positive for ANCA at -1:20. With Pr3 and Mpo antibodies above cut off range
Other lupus antibodies were negative as well as RA factor but i also had a vectrs test done for RA and that came back as moderate with a score of 39 bordering severe #s

Does this sound like a lupus/mixed tissue issue or systemic vasculities?

Thanks for the help

Hello
It's the symptoms that determine diagnosis, with the blood tests being like sign posts. Good Luck!

Hi Rieger and welcome to the site.

Here is a link from the home page of this forum. It will tell you all about the lab tests that are done.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply... really appreciate it. I was actually first sent to rheumo by my neuro because i 1st tested for a high aps antibody . They were running blood work because i was diagnosed with epilepsy last fall and was thought to be the leaning towards MS , then all these other blood markers started to show . idk getting very frustrating, but thanks again for the link!!

The lupus site has changed to new owners. They didn't keep the pages we used back then.
