Hi sushi,

According to Daniel Wallace between 10 to 15% of patients will have mildly increased pressure in pulmonary arteries and it's generally without symptoms.

What type of Vasculitis are you asking about? It has a broad range from skin involvement to the more serious brain involvement and everything in between.

Hi Sushi,

Dr Wallace and some other sources say around 10% of patients will get CNSV and usually within the first five years. This seems a little high really considering the very few we get here with it, I think only around 3 or 4 of us in all the years I've been here and all the members we have. I read another study from Duke University where they said 1% ............ the truth is probably somewhere between the two.

love
Lily
