Prognosis is related to the site and severity of involvement. Aneurysms are an especially feared complication. Thrombotic events and vasculitis may lead to ischemia distal to vascular lesions. Uncontrolled ophthalmologic involvement in the form of anterior and posterior uveitis can lead to vision loss. Neurologic involvement suggests progressive disease and can lead to permanent deficits or even death.
