General Information

Any time a blood vessel narrows or becomes blocked, problems can occur. Vasculitis is the inflammation of your vessel wall. As your vessel wall weakens, your risk of an aneurysm or internal bleeding increases. Vasculitis also causes the organ that's supplied by that blood vessel to suffer from lack of oxygen.

At Goshen Heart & Vascular Center, we know you want to keep your blood vessels flowing smoothly and working their best. That’s why our fellowship trained specialists work together to diagnose and treat vascular diseases like vasculitis.

Are you concerned about your vascular health? Talk to your doctor about a heart screening. Your results will help our Heart & Vascular team make next-step recommendations. If you want to talk to someone at the Heart & Vascular Center, call (574) 533-7476 to make an appointment.

Vasculitis symptoms and causes

Vasculitis can be mild and come on slowly, or can be severe and develop quickly. Your symptoms depend on which body parts are involved. For example, if you have vasculitis in the blood vessels that serve your joint, you may have joint pain. If the vasculitis occurs in the brain, you may have headaches or paralysis. Severe vasculitis may cause you to feel fatigued.

The cause of vasculitis is your immune system attacking your body’s own blood vessels. This is triggered by an underlying autoimmune disorder, infection, reaction to medication or certain types of cancer.
