Vasculitis

emDocs

emDocs - June 12, 2015 - By Brit Long
"Summary and Pearls/Pitfalls
Systemic vasculitis and SLE cause vascular inflammation and fibrosis from immune system involvement. These conditions affect multiple organ systems including the airway, pulmonary, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, renal, cutaneous, ocular, and neurologic systems. Complications and flares affect all of these systems, along with patients subject to infectious complications. These patients often require immediate consultation with rheumatology and critical care. High-dose steroids are necessary to treat the flare, but beware of infection in these patients. Antibiotics in conjunction with steroids are normally required."
