In brief: Cns vasculitis

CNS vasculitis is usually treated with high-dose steroids such as prednisone, in combination with Cyclophosphamide (a medication that decreases the immune system’s response to autoimmune diseases).
In some cases, high-dose steroids alone are tried first; if that does not treat the disease, Cyclophosphamide is added. Treatment must be continued for a prolonged period, sometimes for life.
