Treatment and prognosis for vascularitis in the brain

Posted by RonBraun @RonBraun, Dec 19, 2015

My grandson has a recent diagnosis of vascularitis in the brain. What is the length of treatment and the typical prognosis?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases group.

How challenging this must be for the whole family. Am I right in assuming that this was a long journey to diagnosis?
