Inflammatory Diseases of Blood Vessels is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the science and clinical consequences of vascular inflammation in health and disease. In recent years, considerable progress has been made in understanding the vasculitic diseases. This has been due largely to the introduction of effective treatments for diseases that were once uniformly fatal, the conduct of structured clinical studies, and advances in immunology and molecular biology.These areas of promising research, together with current knowledge about the vasculitic diseases, are extensively examined in this new edition, which is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the science and clinical consequences of vascular inflammation in health and disease.
The book was edited by three of our VF Medical Consultants: Drs. Gary S. Hoffman, Carol A. Langford, Cornelia M. Weyand and by Dr. Jorg J. Goronzy.

Vasculitis affects people of all ages, education levels and socio-economic levels. Members of the vasculitis community have written books about the impact that the disease has had on their lives and their experiences of living with a rare disease.
