1 doctor agrees

In brief: YES, IT MAY

First, what exact vasculitis you mean.
If it is churg-strauss, it can cause damage in lungs, some nerves, even leading to paralysis, heart problems. Kidneys - rarely. Even allergic vasculitis affecting mainly the skin may cause complications inside the body. Even allergic vasculitis that is usually limited to the skin (see website below), can be associated with damage to internal organs.
