Vasculitis

Vasculitis refers to a group of rare diseases that cause blood vessel inflammation. This inflammation causes poor blood flow, which can lead to tissue and organ damage.

There are many types of vasculitis, and each type has its own symptoms. Red rash, numbness, fatigue, fever, aches and pains, and weight loss are common with most vasculitis types. Symptoms can last a short time or persist for years.

Our board-certified physicians are experienced in diagnosing and treating vasculitis. They develop individualized treatment plans with the goal of stopping inflammation and preventing it from coming back.
