What is the outlook for vasculitis?

The most severe types of vasculitis can be life-threatening. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential for the best chances of avoiding permanent damage to tissues and organs.

Most types of vasculitis respond well to treatment, and for many of them you're likely to make a full recovery, although relapses in the future are possible.

The outcome depends on the type of vasculitis and how it affects you. Overall, the best way to learn more about what might happen to you in the future is to talk to your doctor or another health professional.
