Wegener's granulomatosis is a serious systemic vasculitis that needs to be diagnosed promptly to limit morbidity and mortality. Atypical presentations of this disease are not uncommon. This case illustrates a rare manifestation of Wegener's granulomatosis (ie, perirectal abscess) and the value of the antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody in conjunction with supporting pathology.
