In brief: Varies

The vasculitides are a family of diseases that affect blood vessels.
They are generally grouped into different categories depending on the size of the blood vessels affected. Due to this variation, the treatment and prognosis of a vasculitis depends totally on the type. Some are relatively benign while others may be fatal if untreated.
