Hi, there. My cousin has been experiencing some form of the inflammation of her blood vessels. I think the name for disease is vasculitis. A doctor also said something about angiitis. I would like to know if these two terms are synonyms or not. Can someone give me more info? Thank you in advance.

Vasculitis refers to a heterogeneous group of disorders that are characterized by inflammatory destruction of blood vessels. Both arteries and veins are affected. Lymphangitis is sometimes considered a type of vasculitis. Vasculitis is primarily due to leukocyte migration and resultant damage.
