What is the treatment?
The main goal of treatment is to get the patient out of the destructive phase of illness and into a good phase (remission) and to prevent organ damage.

The treatment can be roughly divided into three phases:

  • Induction of remission
  • Maintenance Treatment
  • Relapse Treatment
Severity and extent share the patients into three groups:
  • It localized or early disease.
  • Generalized disease with threatening organ damage
  • Severe and life-threatening illness

Blood vessel inflammation treatment

The drug treatment usually consists of a combination of corticosteroids and chemotherapy (e.g., methotrexate and cyclophosphamide). After an intensive treatment period of 3-6 months (induction of remission) escalating doses down and continue with maintenance therapy. It often lasts for up to 24 months, but in some cases, it lasts longer and rarely is life-long treatment is required. New, so-called biological therapies, have been shown to give good results in cases where the ordinary treatment fails.
