Wegener’s Granulomatosis also known more recently as Granulomatosis with polyangiitis, is a systemic autoimmune vascular disorder which usually affects small and medium sized vessels of the body. Often there is presence of necrotising granulomatosis resulting in formation of localised granulomas along with the tissue damage [1,2]. It commonly involves various organ systems like Nose, Lungs, Nasal sinuses, Trachea, Kidneys, Heart, Skin, Eyes, Ear and various body joints often resulting in cough, chest pain, haemoptysis, sinusitis, otitis, rhinitis, subglottic stenosis, nasal septum perforation, nasal mucosa ulcers, glomerulonephritis, pericarditis, skin lesions . Here we report a case of Wegener’s Granulomatosis scheduled for Bilateral Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) and Bilateral Myringotomy with Grommet Insertion requiring General Anaesthesia.
