Our Approach to Treating

Vasculitis in Adults

Vasculitis is an immune system disorder that causes destructive inflammation of the blood vessels, including arteries, veins, and capillaries. The many types of vasculitis are categorized by the size of the blood vessel affected. Because vasculitis may disrupt blood flow to organs and tissues throughout the body, an early and accurate diagnosis is critical to avoiding permanent damage to the affected organs and to the blood vessels themselves. 

Rheumatologists at NYU Langone have extensive experience diagnosing and managing this condition and can quickly help to alleviate your symptoms and create a treatment plan.

Treatment for Vasculitis in Adults

NYU Langone specialists pinpoint the origin of vasculitis and develop a treatment plan, which may include the use of medications, plasma exchange, or immunotherapy.
