When to Seek Medical Care
Vasculitis diseases, in general, are serious conditions and need to be evaluated promptly. The difficulty is that they may be difficult to recognize even by doctors, because they are uncommon conditions which are not encountered routinely.
Typically, internal medicine doctors (internists), rheumatologists, dermatologists (skin doctors), eye doctors (ophthalmologists), lung doctors (pulmonologists), and kidney doctors (nephrologists) may recognize signs and manifestations of vasculitic diseases and may initiate the diagnostic evaluation for vasculitic conditions.
