Abstract

This report describes a case of severe limited Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) presenting in the third trimester of pregnancy with pansinusitis and necrotizing pneumonitis. The patient was treated successfully with a combination of corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide (CYC). The outcomes in the mother and the newborn were excellent. In a review of the English-language literature, we found 10 similar cases of WG with 13 pregnancies. WG occurring during pregnancy may have a more aggressive course and may require more aggressive treatment compared with WG occurring at other times. The treatment options for WG in pregnancy are discussed.
