The article presents an analysis of a 70-year-old man who is suffering from lower abdominal pain for a week. Medical history shows that patient has an anti-neutrophil auto-antibody (ANCA)-positive extracapillary-proliferative glomerulonephritis. Examination indicates elevated C-reactive protein and decreased renal function. A prominent ulcerating inflammation was observed on the colonoscopy which suggests a local vascular disease.
