In brief: Arteritis

This is inflammation of an arterial blood vessel.
This is caused either by allergy to a drug where the body thinks the drug is foreign and needs to be removed. Other times the body just reacts against the blood vessels, causing blockage, usually accompanied by a rash, fever, damage to organs the blood vessel supplies ie kidney, lung skin, eye, brain, joint
