Ashton Kutcher reveals rare disease has left him unable to see, hear and walk – Celebrities

“Two years ago, I got this rare and strange disease called vasculitis, which took away my vision, my hearing, my balance,” Kutcher, 44, revealed on Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge.

Vasculitis is a group of heterogeneous autoimmune diseases characterized by primary inflammation in the walls of blood vessels. In vasculitis, the inflammation usually does not affect the veins.

“You can’t really appreciate it until it’s gone,” Kutcher said.

“I didn’t know if I would ever be able to see, hear or walk. I’m lucky to be alive.”

The actor states that he has fully recovered from this rare illness.
