Wegener's granulomatosis (WG), more recently granulomatosis with
polyangiitis (GPA), is an incurable form of vasculitis
(inflammation of blood vessels) that affects the nose, lungs,
kidneys and other organs. Due to its end-organ damage, it is
life-threatening and requires long-term immunosuppression.
Five-year survival is up to 87%, with some of the mortality due to
toxicity of treatment. It is named after Dr. Friedrich Wegener, who
described the disease in 1936. In 2011, three professional bodies
proposed a more descriptive name.
