Vasculitis

Content

Vasculitis is inflammation of the blood vessels. This inflammation can damage and narrow the blood vessels, causing a rash, a change in sensation, fatigue, or other symptoms.

Bleeding from the blood vessel may cause bruises or blood spots under the skin. Vasculitis can decrease blood supply to tissues or organs, causing blood clots, pain, tissue damage, and organ malfunction.

We offer expert diagnosis and management of autoimmune and rheumatic disorders, including:

  • Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (Wegener’s) and ANCA associated vasculitis
  • Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (Churg-Strauss)
  • Giant Cell Arteritis (Temporal Arteritis)
  • Other forms of vasculitis
