was told that i have that too on top of the scleroderma, its an overlap of the scleroderma, but that doesnt really help me understand, ive read some links supplied by the members, but i just get lost in it, i would like just a plain old fashion explanation of it and what it does, and if theres bad id like to know that to. the doctor explained fast but not efficiently which leaves me frustrated so any words from the members? thank you
I copied the information: Vasculitis refers to a heterogeneous group of disorders that are characterized by inflammatory destruction of blood vessels. Both arteries and veins are affected. Lymphangitis is sometimes considered a type of vasculitis. Vasculitis is primarily due to leukocyte migration and resultant damage.
Although both occur in vasculitis, inflammation of veins (phlebitis) or arteries (arteritis) on their own are separate entities.
Please for more information the site is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasculitis, which would you to understand it better, hope this helps?
