A 27-year-old woman presented with destructive scleritis of the left eye with subcutaneous haemorrhage and swelling of the lower eyelid. She had experienced recurrent nasal bleeding for the last six years, and chronic sinusitis resulting in the destruction of the nasal septum and left maxillary sinus. Nasal mucosal biopsies demonstrated granuloma formation with no evidence of vasculitis. The level of serum cytoplasmic anti-neutrophil cytoplasm antibody (c-ANCA) was significantly increased. Furthermore, multiple sites of complete occlusions were detected in the left subclavian and common carotid arteries by subtraction angiography and MRI. We describe a case of Wegener's granulomatosis overlapped with Takayasu arteritis, which, to our knowledge, has not been previously reported.
