In recent years it has become the number 1 cause of cancer death worldwide. One of the main causes is smoking. But non-smokers can also be affected.

Vasculitis Center

The Vasculitis Center Rhein-Main specializes in rheumatic inflammation of the blood vessels.

Vasculitis knows no age: anyone can get it. The infestation can affect both large blood vessels such as the main artery or abdominal vessels, but also the small blood vessels; also internal organs, nerves and the skin. Vasculitis is also known as chameleon disease because it is similar to other diseases, such as infections or haemato-oncological diseases. This is mainly due to the unspecific symptoms such as fever, rash and weight loss. The unspecific characteristics make diagnosis difficult. The diagnosis can be made quickly in an interdisciplinary center. Due to the large number of possible affected vessels and organs, affected patients should always be cared for by a competent team of different specialists. "
