Harold Ramis cause of death was vasculitis. The death of 69-year-old famed American actor Harold Ramis from vasculitis on Monday has put the spot back on the disease. It has been reported that actor-director Harold, who has been struggling with the mysterious disease for the last four years, could not survive.

According to doctors, vasculitis has the potential to starve organs. Also, it leads to painful tissue damage. How does vasculitis develop? Blood vessels become inflamed. After this blood flow is restricted and in some cases cutting it off entirely. Giving detail info about the disease, the National Institutes of Health said that disease can lead to dangerous internal bleeding.

Dr. Peter Merkel, a rheumatologist and director of the Penn Vasculitis Center at the University of Pennsylvania medical school, said: “Basically, the arteries can be leaking, they can be blocked or broken, and that all causes problems. If you interrupt the blood supply, whatever organ or tissue is being supplied downstream is unhappy.”

Reports quoting United Talent Agency that represented Harold for many years said that he suffered painfully. “Some of the manifestations are painful or very debilitating,” said Dr Merkel.

It is understood that the director of Caddyshack, National Lampoon’s Vacation and Groundhog Day, suffered an infection. And it turned out to be fatal leading to complications that turned out to be so painful that he relearned to walk. And the rest is history. Harold has left behind his wife, Erica Mann Ramis, three children and two grandchildren.
