Abstract
Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) is characterized by necrotizing granulomatous vasculitis of small or medium sized vessels affecting the upper and lower respiratory tracts and kidney. It is well known that peripheral neuropathy is one of the leading manifestations of WG in western countries but there are rare cases of WG showing peripheral neuropathy in Korea. We report a patient with WG having peripheral neuropathy in his pathological and immunological findings.KeyWords:Wegener's granulomatosis, Vasculitis, Peripheral neuropathy
