Vasculitic Neuropathy and Its Ayurvedic Management


There are a lot of medical conditions. Some of them mimic each other that it is so difficult to differentiate between them. Many times a disease remains undiagnosed for long until it gets worse and chronic. Vasculitic neuropathy is one of them. Vasculitis is a type of illness in which inflammation of the blood vessels occurs. The inflammation of the blood vessels may occlude the pathway of the blood supply to the organs resulting in subsequent ischemia. When the blood vessels which supply the peripheral nerves get inflamed, it results in vasculitic neuropathy. In the following text, we shall look into a detail of vasculitic neuropathy and its management. Let’s discuss!!!


The inflammation of the blood vessels which supplies to the peripheral nerves is known as vasculitic neuropathy. The condition can manifest with a systemic issue or can manifest as a single organ problem (nonsystemic vasculitic neuropathy) that only affects the peripheral nervous system. It can involve the kidneys, lungs, skin and other organs. In Ayurveda, the condition can be correlated with vata and pitta vitiation. As the inflammation and neurological symptoms are caused by  pitta and vata dosha vitiation respectively. So vata and pitta imbalance can be ideally correlated with Vasculitic neuropathy.

vasculitic neuropathy


  1. Idiopathic – When no known cause can be diagnosed.
  2. Autoimmune – when the immune system attacks on itself causing inflammation of the blood vessels supplying the peripheral nervous system.
  3. Allergic – when the allergic symptoms due various agents occur results in inflammation of the blood vessels.
  4. Infections – infections like HIV, Hepatitis B , Hepatitis C  and others can lead to vasculitic neuropathy.

In primary vasculitic neuropathy, multiorgan disease spreads to the peripheral nervous system.

3. Non-systemic Vasculitic Neuropathy
