If I'm in the wrong group please direct me to the right group. Is Vasculitis an autoimmune disease? My RBC, WBC and Immature granules are too high. The ANA is negative. I get a rash on my left side under my spleen. It goes away on it's own but has come back several times. Before the negative ANA my doctor was convinced I had Vasculitis and wants a biopsy. I don't want to do one unless I really have this. Waiting to hear from doctor.

Hi @fitchick40, There is another discussion with the same name in the Autoimmune group. I'm tagging our moderator @ethanmcconkey to see if we can move your post to the following discussion to combine the two discussions.

There is also an active discussion on the ANA test results here that you may want to join and post your question.

Have you had any other tests done to determine if you have vasculitis? Mayo Clinic has some information that may be helpful here:
