Vasculitis describes a group of rare diseases that involve inflammation of the blood vessels. Since there is more than one type, the disease can be mild or serious. If you've been diagnosed with a form of vasculitis, depending on the type, severity of the disease, and the organs it affects, multiple specialists may be involved in your care. But a rheumatologist usually manages a vasculitis patient's overall care and can answer questions you may have about the disease's symptoms, causes, treatments, and possible complications.
