Wegener Granulomatosis

Wegener GranulomatosisMuhamad SyahilmiWhat Is Wegener GranulomatosisWegeners granulomatosis is a rare disease, in which the blood vessels and other tissues become inflamed. This inflammation damages important organs of the body by limiting blood flow to those organs and destroying normal tissueIt was first described by Klinger in 1933 and by other investigators such as Rossle in 1933, Wegener in 1936 and 1939 and Ringertz in 1947.

PathogenesisThe cause of WG is unknown

Clinical featureWG is most commonly associated with disease of the sinuses, lungs, and kidneys, but it is very much a multisystem disease.

Ear/nose/throat/mouth Nasal septum perforation, saddle-nose deformity, conductive or sensorineural hearing loss, subglottic stenosis, strawberry gums, oral ulcers

EyeOrbital pseudotumor, conjunctivitis, keratitis (risk of corneal melt), anterior uveitis, scleritis, episcleritis

LungNodules, infiltrates, cavitary lesions, alveolar hemorrhage, bronchial lesions

HeartOccasional valvular lesions, pericarditis

KidneySegmental necrotizing glomerulonephritis, renal failure requiring hemodialysis

SkinVesicular, palpable purpuric, ulcerative, or hemorrhagic lesions

Treatment For Wegener Granulomatosis

CyclophosphamideThe typical daily cyclophosphamide dose is2 mg/kg/day, and should generally not exceed200 mg/day. Dose adjustments are critical for patients with older age (e.g. greater than70 years), renal dysfunction MethotrexateMethotrexate at a starting dose of 0.25 mg/kg/week (typically 1520 mg/week), increased to a maximum of 25 mg/weekGlucocorticoiddose of prednisone in the range of 0.51.0 mg/kg (up to a maximum of 80 mg/day)
