Abstract

Wegener's granulomatosis is a rare necrotizing vasculitis usually affecting the respiratory tract and kidneys. The aetiology is unknown and it usually occurs in patients over the age of 40. Involvement of the gastrointestinal tract in Wegener's granulomatosis is relatively rare and usually occurs long after the onset of initial symptoms. Acute colitis as a presenting feature of Wegener's granulomatosis is very rare with only a few reports in theliterature. We describe a young woman who presented initially to hospital with gastrointestinal features and then developed a severe colitis and severe gastrointestinal haemorrhage. This preceded the development of respiratory tract features with severe pulmonary haemorrhage, haemoptysis and the development of rapidly progressive renal failure and nasal septal perforation. Following treatment with intravenous steroids and cyclophosphamide, gastrointestinal symptoms and signs improved dramatically, as did her pulmonary disease. She still remains dialysis dependent, due to end-stage renal disease secondary to glomerulonephritis. Eur J Gastroenterol Hepatol 13:993-995 (C) 2001 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
