Vasculitis

 

Vasculitis is a word used to describe various diseases that involve inflammation of the blood vessels. The blood vessel system is made up of various sizes of blood vessels, arteries (which carry blood away from the heart), veins (which carry blood back to the heart) and capillaries (tiny blood vessels) through which the blood travels to all tissues and organs.
