What are the Complications of Vasculitis?

Most cases of vasculitis can be treated by giving proper medication, however, some cases of vasculitis are severe and involve major organ systems. In these cases, damage to the organs may occur before treatment has time to work, or the condition may be so severe as to resist treatment. These cases can result in major organ damage or death.

Even when treatment for vasculitis is initially successful, the condition may recur later and require further treatment. Giant cell arteritis, Wegener's granulomatosis and Takayasu's arteritis all are types of vasculitis that often recur after initial remission.

Hi, I am 36 years male, I had 4 bouts of nasal polyps operation and I developed asthma after my first operation. I had used dose regime of corticosteroids and antibiotics for all the times. I had to go to emergency at least 4 times with rashes on my feet and I did not use any medications. In one instance my CRP was high and also my esinophilic counts and IgE. Now I have a esinophil count between 8-11% with mucous in my nostrils,loss of smell and also in my stool. I feel I have inflammation in my viscera altering at different locations. All the signs do points to Vesiculitis but no doctor has diagnosed me that condition during my visits.I once got ANA positive but this can sometimes be false negative. I don't know what to do could you help

They have shown vasculitis to be linked to siderosis and a lack of antioxidants. Siderosis causes oxidation so one can understand WHY one might be low on antioxidants. Low iron diet and iron depletion therapy. "For the first time, we present one patient with vasculitis of the central nervous system associated with systemic hemochromatosis in superficial siderosis. Therapeutic approach included immunosuppressive therapy and venupunctures in the patient with vasculitis and hemochromatosis, and symptomatic treatment with chelating agents and antioxidants. The patient remained clinically stable for the follow-up period of up to 2 years."
