Nowadays intravenous immunoglobulins have been used in different vasculitis with various results for each condition, being more recommended for its use in Kawasaki disease and ANCA-associated vasculitis. However, there is still no solid evidence to support its use in the entire group of these diseases. We present a review of the existing literature related to the use of intravenous immunoglobulin for the treatment of primary vasculitis in childhood.

Key words: Primary vascultis, intravenous gammaglobulin, children.
