Complications of vasculitis depend on the type of vasculitis you have. In general, complications that can occur include:

  • Organ damage. Some types of vasculitis can be severe, causing damage to major organs.
  • Recurring episodes of vasculitis. Even when treatment for vasculitis is initially successful, the condition may recur and require additional treatment. In other cases, vasculitis may never completely go away and requires ongoing treatment.
