Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Recurrent Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) was diagnosed in a 40 year old man presenting with a solitary mass in the right lung apex and with possible lymph node enlargement in the anterior mediastinum, resembling malignancy. Eight years previously, a first episode of WG involving the upper airways and kidneys, but not the lungs, had been successfully treated with prednisolone and cyclophosphamide, which could be stopped after 2 yrs. The antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody titres (anti-protease 3), which had been very high during the first disease episode, failed to predict the recurrence.
