Wegener's granulomatosis is a necrotizing vasculitis of unknown etiology characterized mainly by inflammation of the small- and medium-sized arteries and veins that affect any viscera. It may rarely involve the gastrointestinal tract. Only a few cases of multiple focus ileal perforation due to ulcers associated with Wegener's granulomatosis have been reported. Herein we report a case of a 32-year-old man with extensive intestinal small bowel ischaemic perforation due to Wegener's granulomatosis.
