- A multisystemic disease of a complex genetic background. It is characterized by inflammation of the blood vessels (vasculitis) leading to damage in any number of organs. The common features include granulomatous inflammation of the respiratory tract and kidneys. Most patients have measurable autoantibodies (antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies) against neutrophil proteinase-3 (wegener autoantigen).
- A rare, autoimmune, systemic medium and small size vasculitis. It is characterized by the formation of necrotizing granulomas in the respiratory tract, necrotizing angiitis, and glomerulonephritis.
- Multisystem disease chiefly affecting males, characterized by necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis involving the upper and lower respiratory tracts, glomerulonephritis, and variable degrees of systemic small vessel vasculitis; considered an aberrant hypersensitivity reaction to an unknown antigen.
- Wegener's granulomatosis is a rare disease. It is a type of vasculitis, or inflammation of the blood vessels. The inflammation limits the flow of blood to important organs, causing damage. It can affect any organ, but it mainly affects the sinuses, nose, trachea (windpipe), lungs, and kidneys. The cause of wegener's granulomatosis is unknown. It can affect people at any age. Men and women are equally affected. It is more common in whites. Symptoms may include joint pain, weakness, tiredness, and cold symptoms such as a runny nose that doesn't get better. Doctors use blood tests, chest x-rays, and biopsies to diagnose the disease and rule out other causes of the symptoms.early treatment is important. Most people improve with medicines to slow or stop the inflammation.
