Abstract

Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) is a disease characterized by a granulomatous necrotizing vasculitis of small vessels. Although any organ systems can be involved, gastrointestinal involvement in WG is notably uncommon. We present a case of 67-year-old man who was admitted with abdominal pain and diarrhea lasting for 3 weeks. Colonoscopy and abdominal CT scan revealed vasculitis and multiple mesenteric lymphadenopathy. Jejunum and mesenteric lymph nodes biopsies confirmed limited form of WG. The present case indicates that WG might involve only gastrointestinal tract and the histological confirmation is important for diagnosis.
