Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The major manifestations of Wegener's granulomatosis have been well described. Jaw claudication has not been recognized as one of the symptoms associated with this disease. We report the first case of Wegener's granulomatosis presenting with jaw claudication. Documentation of different histological types of vasculitis producing similar symptoms broadens our concepts of systemic vasculitis and emphasizes the need for tissue biopsy for diagnosis.
