Abstract

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis also known as Wegener’s Disease is involving mostly upper respiratory tract and sometimes kidney. It’s very rare that these disease start from kidney and involve both kidney’s. We present a case of 50 years old female patient who developed unspecific symptoms in kidney’s and after two operation on both kidney’s the diagnosis was not sure in histopathology. The extension of diagnosis which include: CT scan, immunology (antinuclear antibodies c-ANCA and p-ANCA) showed that it could be granulomatosis with polyangiitis which symptoms started from kidney's. This publication is showing step by step the path of the patients from symptoms to correct diagnosis.
