Abstract

We describe the case of a patient who initially presented with pneumonia from Staphylococcus aureus and Candida parapsilosis, which was resolved with antibiotic treatment, but reappeared 6 months later as full-blown Wegener's granulomatosis. The possible pathogenetic correlations between infective agents, in particular Staphylococcus aureus and Candida, and Wegener's granulomatosis are discussed.
