Wegener's granulomatosis is a necrotizing, granulomatous vasculitis. It usually causes sinusitis, pneumonitis and glomerulonephritis. The common ocular manifestations include conjunctivitis, scleritis, peripheral keratitis and orbital inflammation. We report the case of a 50-year-old woman with Wegener's granulomatosis and very severe ocular complications who underwent bilateral enucleation. The pathologic findings of the eyeballs revealed granulomatous necrotizing scleritis, perivasculitis and granulomatous choroiditis. The last, as far as we know, has not yet been reported.
