A thirty four year old female presented with upper and lower respiratory symptoms in the third trimester of pregnancy. After the delivery of a healthy baby, the symptoms progressed to involve multiple organ systems and eventually a diagnosis of limited Wegener's Granulomatosis (Carrington-Liebow syndrome) was made. The extremely rare combination of WG and pregnancy, especially the onset of disease in late pregnancy is discussed. The successful outcome of pregnancy even without treatment of WG is the highlight of the case.
