Causes of Vasculitis:

The exact cause of vasculitis is not known, but it is believed to be a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune system factors. Vasculitis occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's own blood vessels, leading to inflammation and damage. Several factors can increase the risk of developing vasculitis, including:

  • Age: Vasculitis is more common in older adults, but it can occur at any age.
  • Gender: Some types of vasculitis are more common in women than men.
  • Family history: Having a family history of vasculitis or autoimmune diseases increases the risk of developing the condition.
  • Infections: Certain infections, such as hepatitis B and hepatitis C, can trigger vasculitis.
  • Medications: Some medications, such as antibiotics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), can increase the risk of vasculitis.

Symptoms of Vasculitis:

The symptoms of vasculitis can vary depending on which blood vessels are affected and how severe the inflammation is. Common symptoms of vasculitis include:

Diagnosis of Vasculitis:

Vasculitis is diagnosed using a combination of medical history, physical examination, blood tests, imaging tests, and a biopsy of the affected blood vessels. These tests can help determine the type and severity of vasculitis and guide treatment.

Treatment of Vasculitis:

Treatment for vasculitis depends on the type and severity of the condition. Treatment options may include:

  • Medications: Several medications are available to help reduce inflammation and suppress the immune system.
  • Lifestyle changes: Eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can help manage vasculitis.
  • Supportive care: Physical therapy, occupational therapy, and counselling can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life.
