The association between antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis (AAV) and cancer remains poorly understood. In this study, we searched the Korea National Health Insurance Claims Database to obtain data for 2097 AAV patients, and evaluated the risk of cancers in AAV. The standardized incidence ratios (SIRs) of overall and site-specific cancers were estimated in patients with AAV compared to the general population. The overall risk of cancer was significantly higher in patients with AAV (SIR 1.90); this remained true in both males (SIR 1.74) and females (SIR 2.06). For site-specific cancers, the risks of lung (SIR 2.23) and hematological (SIR 11.39) cancers were higher in AAV patients. For males, the risks of gallbladder and hematological cancers were increased, while the risks of bladder and hematological cancers were increased in females. Among AAV subtypes, patients with granulomatosis with polyangiitis had the highest risk of cancers, and cyclophosphamide, azathioprine/mizoribine, and methotrexate ever-users had increased risk of overall cancer. The risks of overall and hematological cancers were elevated in AAV patients younger than 60 years old. Patients with AAV have increased risks of overall, lung, and hematological cancers. Distinct patterns of cancer incidence are present according to age, sex, AAV subtypes, and immunosuppressant usage.
