What is Vasculitis?

Vasculitis is a family of rare diseases that can affect people of all ages.

Vasculitis means inflammation of the blood vessels, arteries, veins or capillaries. When such inflammation occurs, it causes changes in the walls of blood vessels, such as weakening and narrowing that can progress to the point of blood vessel blockage.

A result of Vasculitis is that the tissues and organs supplied by affected blood vessels do not get enough blood. This can cause organ and tissue damage.

The purpose of Vasculitis Ireland Awareness is to offer support and information to patients and family members where needed.
