ABSTRACT
A case with the characteristic clinical and histologic changes of Wegener's granulomatosis is reported. The clinical signs dominated with symptoms from the nose and left orbit, the respiratory tract, the kidneys and the central nervous system. Histologic evidence of the disease was found in biopsy material from the orbital tissue. Roentgenologic changes in the paranasal sinuses, the lungs, and central nervous system were demonstrated. The course of the disease was one of steady downhill progress with a short, probably therapeutically induced remission. It ended in circulatory failure after a malacic incident in the left hemisphere.
