These errors often result in significant permanent injuries to the patient. The results can be devastating to the patient and the family.
Vasculitis is a general term for a group of uncommon diseases that feature inflammation of the blood vessels. The blood vessels of the body are referred to as the vascular system. The blood vessels are comprised of arteries that pass oxygen-rich blood to the tissues of the body and veins that return oxygen-depleted blood from the tissues to the lungs for oxygen. Vasculitis is characterized by inflammation in and damage to the walls of various blood vessels.
Failure to Diagnose Vasculitis
Physicians are trained to suspect vasculitis when the patient presents to them with the signs and symptoms of the condition. Timely diagnosis is important to prevent permanent damage. Tests used to diagnose the condition include a blood culture, complete blood count, and a CT Scan or MRI of the spine.
If diagnosed in a timely manner, significant damage and injury can be avoided with proper treatment. This treatment includes the use of medications, like cortisone-related medications, and other immune suppression drugs. Proper monitoring is also necessary until the patient fully recovers from the condition.
