Abstract

Anti-neutrophil-cytoplasm antibodies recently have been reported as serologic markers of Wegener's granulomatosis. We describe two cases in which this test appeared to be of great value in the diagnosis of Wegener's granulomatosis presenting as acute respiratory failure, a clinical setting in which it may be the only diagnostic test that can be safely and easily performed.
