Abstract

We report about the treatment of eight patients with Wegener's granulomatosis and one patient with systemic pANCA-associated vasculitis with a single course of high-dose intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG). In 5 of 9 patients (55%) this resulted in significant clinical improvement, in two patients a decrease of the ANCA-titre was seen.
