Prospective long-term follow-up of patients localised Wegener's granulomatosis (locWG): does it occur as persistent disease stage?

Recommended Posts

Prospective long-term follow-up of patients localised Wegener's granulomatosis (locWG): does it occur as persistent disease stage? There is evidence that locWG is a long-term disease stage or phenotype (5% of all patients with WG), 46% of whom are ANCA-positive. LocWG is characterised by destructive and/or space-consuming lesions associated with high relapse rates (46%) and local damage. J U Holle. Ann rheumatologist Dis.May 2010. (Also see: Wegener's Granulmatosis)
