Answer

Once a diagnosis of urticarial vasculitis is made, follow-up care depends on the patient's complement levels. If complement level findings are normal, follow patients for symptoms and response to treatment. If complement level findings are low, follow patients for attendant complications related to the cause of their hypocomplementemia (see History).
