Vasculitis connected to Blood Disorder?

Posted by fitchick40 @fitchick40, Fri, Jun 14 12:03pm

I have Erythocytosis which is controlled. I recently started getting a painful rash on my stomach but it comes and goes. My hematologist said it's Vasculitis and wants to do a biopsy when it flares up again. Has anyone experienced Vasculitis due to your blood disorder? The doctor wasn't sure what was causing it. I eat healthy and exercise.

Hello @fitchick40. My apologies for the late response to this discussion. If you don't mind me asking and if you are comfortable sharing, was there a particular type of vasculitis that you were diagnosed with? Mayo Clinic lists multiple types of vasculitis, https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vasculitis/symptoms-causes/syc-20363435. You may also notice that one of the listed causes of vasculitis is indeed being diagnosed with a blood cancer/disorder. Have you had another flare since you posted your original message? Was any treatment discussed?
