Artus Arthritis


Vasculitis represents a range of conditions where the primary target of damage is the blood vessel. These include conditions like temporal arteritis (giant cell arteritis), granulomatosus with polyangiitis (formerly Wegener’s granulomatosus), and other ANCA associated vasculidities.  These conditions can affect any orgran in the body but commonly involve lungs, kidneys, nerves and skin.

Inflammatory Muscle Disease

These are a group of rare conditions where muscle becomes damaged from an autoimmune trigger leading to severe muscle weakness.  In many cases treatment can lead to remission.  ARTUS Health Centre has vast experience with these rare diseases.

If you suffer from one of these conditions or suspect you do, please discuss your symptoms with your family doctor for a possible referral to ARTUS Health Centre
