Hemoptysis Shortness of breath Cough recurrent episodes Physical examination Respiratory system: nonspecific Examination of ocular, nasopharynx, cutaneous evidence of vasculitis +/- fever 3 investigation CXR: alveolar infiltrate mostly diffuse + bilateral Pleural effusion rare Blood investigation: Low hemoglobin Raised TLC ANA/ANCA/Antiglomerular basement membrane antibodies ESR Histopathology Alveolar hemorrhage May be due to surgical trauma ( could be differentiated by finding intra alveolar fibrin, hemosiderin in the alveolar walls and hemosiderin-laden macrophages Capillaritis: Fibrin thrombi in capillaries Fibrinoid necrosis of capillary walls Interstitial accumulation of fragmented neutrophils Nuclear dust adjacent to capillaries 4 wegener anemia Renal disease + + cutaneous arthritis + + Micro PAN + + + + SLE + + +/- + Good pasture’s IPH + - - - + - - - IPC + - - - HSP + + + + ANA dsDNA CL RF ANCA ABMA Tissue stain WG +/- - N +- + - granular Mic PAN SLE +- - N +- + - - + + low + - -- granular GP - - N - - + Linear IPH - - N - - - - IPC - - N - +- - - HSP - - N - - - granular 5 Wegener’s granulomatosis Sytemic vasculitis in middle aged adults with necrotizing granulomas in upper and lower respiratory tract cANCA + Focal segmental necrotizing GN DAH with capillaritis(subacute and recurrent) Treated with Corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide Newer agent are IVIG, Cotrimox, Antilymphocyte monoclonal antibodies, tumor necrosis factor inhibitor Microscopic polyangitis Small vessel variant of PAN p ANCA + Focal segmental necrotizing GN DAH with capillaritis is common Treated with corticosteroid + cyclophosphamide /azathioprine Short term mortality is 25% 5 yr survival rate is >60% 6 Good pasture’s syndrome DAH + GN + ABMA in serum / tissue DAH Young smoker Young HLA B7 and HLA DR w2 – severe HLA renal disease and poor prognosis.
