Pulmonary renal syndrome in a patient with vasculitis: Case report and review of literature
Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) previously known as Wegner’s granulomatosis, is a small vessel vasculitis that preferentially involves capillaries, arterioles and venules, presenting as multisystemic disease classically with alveolar haemorrhage and renal insufficiency. We report a case of GPA diagnosed on history, clinical findings and supported by imaging and very high levels of C-ANCA. Renal biopsy confirmed the typical histopathological findings. We discuss herein the management of the case and review of literature.
