In this webinar, Dr. Lindsay Lally, Vasculitis Fellow at the Hospital for Special Surgery, New York City, discusses the use of prednisone in the treatment of vasculitis. The drug helps control inflammation in the affected blood vessels, but side effects, including weight gain, diabetes, and bone thinning, can be severe, especially with long-term use.

She completed her residency in Internal Medicine at New York Presbyterian Hospital – Weill Cornell Medical Center, followed by her Rheumatology Fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
Dr. Lally specializes in the care of patients with various rheumatic conditions including vasculitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, scleroderma, and rheumatoid arthritis, and has a particular interest in the systemic vasculitides. Dr. Lally is an investigator in numerous clinical and translational studies focusing on vasculitis. She has been the recipient of several awards including a Vasculitis Foundation Research Grant and the American College of Rheumatology Distinguished Fellow Award.
