Summaries for Vasculitis

MedlinePlus: 41 Vasculitis is an inflammation of the blood vessels. It happens when the body's immune system attacks the blood vessel by mistake. It can happen because of an infection, a medicine, or another disease. The cause is often unknown. Vasculitis can affect arteries, veins and capillaries. Arteries are vessels that carry blood from the heart to the body's organs. Veins are the vessels that carry blood back to the heart. Capillaries are tiny blood vessels that connect the small arteries and veins. When a blood vessel becomes inflamed, it can: Narrow, making it more difficult for blood to get through. Close off completely so that blood can't get through. Stretch and weaken so much that it bulges. The bulge is called an aneurysm. If it bursts, it can cause dangerous bleeding inside the body. Symptoms of vasculitis can vary, but usually include fever, swelling and a general sense of feeling ill. The main goal of treatment is to stop the inflammation. Steroids and other medicines to stop inflammation are often helpful. NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

MalaCards based summary: Vasculitis, also known as autoimmune vasculitis, is related to hypersensitivity vasculitis and churg-strauss syndrome, and has symptoms including angina pectoris, chest pain and edema. An important gene associated with Vasculitis is PRTN3 (Proteinase 3), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Cytokine Signaling in Immune system and Innate Immune System. The drugs Alemtuzumab and Dapsone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include neutrophil, lung and heart, and related phenotypes are immune system and hematopoietic system

Orphanet: 58 Vasculitis represents a clinically heterogenous group of diseases of multifactorial etiology characterized by inflammation of either large-sized vessels (large-vessel vasculitis, e.g. Giant-cell arteritis and Takayasu arteritis; see these terms), medium-sized vessels (medium-vessel vasculitis e.g. polyarteritis nodosa and Kawasaki disease; see these terms), or small-sized vessels (small-vessel vasculitis, e.g. granulomatosis with polyangiitis, microscopic polyangiitis, immunoglobulin A vasculitis, and cutaneous leukocytoclastic angiitis; see these terms). Vasculitis occurs at any age, may be acute or chronic, and manifests with general symptoms such as fever, weight loss and fatigue, as well as more specific clinical signs depending on the type of vessels and organs affected. The degree of severity is variable, ranging from life or sight threatening disease (e.g. Behçet disease, see this term) to relatively minor skin disease.

PubMed Health : 63 Vasculitis: Vasculitis (vas-kyu-LI-tis) is a condition that involves inflammation in the blood vessels. The condition occurs if your immune system attacks your blood vessels by mistake. This may happen as the result of an infection, a medicine, or another disease or condition. “Inflammation” refers to the body’s response to injury, including injury to the blood vessels. Inflammation may involve pain, redness, warmth, swelling, and loss of function in the affected tissues. In vasculitis, inflammation can lead to serious problems. Complications depend on which blood vessels, organs, or other body systems are affected.

GARD: 19 An inflammatory process involving the wall of the vessels (large, medium, or small-sized vessels). The inflammatory process may cause necrosis or formation of granulomas in the vascular wall. It may be the result of an autoimmune disorder, infection, or malignancy. Representative examples include polyarteritis nodosa, temporal arteritis, Wegener granulomatosis, Kawasaki disease, Takayasu arteritis, and Henoch-Schonlein purpura.

Disease Ontology: 11 A vascular disease that is characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels.

Wikipedia: 75 Vasculitis is a group of disorders that destroy blood vessels by inflammation. Both arteries and veins... more...

Drugs & Therapeutics for Vasculitis

PubMed Health treatment related to Vasculitis: 63

Treatment for vasculitis will depend on the type of vasculitis you have, which organs are affected, and the severity of the condition. People who have severe vasculitis are treated with prescription medicines. Rarely, surgery may be done. People who have mild vasculitis may find relief with over-the-counter pain medicines, such as acetaminophen , aspirin , ibuprofen , or naproxen . The main goal of treating vasculitis is to reduce inflammation in the affected blood vessels . This usually is done by reducing or stopping the immune response that caused the inflammation.
