  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Vasculitis comprises a wide variety of syndromes characterized by inflammation and necrosis in the blood vessels, resulting in narrowing or occlusion of the lumen. Vasculitic neuropathy is often associated with vasculitic syndrome affecting middle or small sized blood vessels. Also, vasculitis restricted to peripheral nerves, that is, nonsystemic vasculitic neuropathy, has become accepted as a specific entity of vasculitis. Since peripheral nerves have a rich anastomotic blood supply, vasculitic neuropathy becomes evident only when multiple vessels are involved.
