General Discussion
Wegener’s granulomatosis is an uncommon condition defined by inflammation of capillary (vasculitis) that results in harm to different body organ systems of the body, usually the respiratory system tract as well as kidneys. Signs might include ulcers of the mucous membrane layers in the nose with second microbial infection, a consistent runny nose, sinus discomfort, as well as chronic center ear infection (otitis media) possibly leading to hearing loss. In many cases, kidney abnormalities could advance to kidney failure, a serious complication. If the lungs are impacted, a coughing, expectoration of blood (hemoptysis), as well as swelling of the thin membrane layer lining the outside of the lungs as well as the inside of the lung may exist. The specific source of Wegener’s granulomatosis is unknowned.
