WEGNER'S GRANULOMATOSIS-DIAGNOSIS

Respiratory

WEGNER'S GRANULOMATOSIS-DIAGNOSIS

1. Affects kidney, lungs, and sinuses.

2. Consider GPA in any patient who presents with a purulent nasal discharge, epistaxis, and/or signs of a glomerulonephritis with hematuria.

3. The patient typically is not dyspneic and may not have a cough or hemoptysis.

4. If you see a similar presentation but ANCA-negative, think anti-glomerular basement membrane disease.
