Wegener’s granulomatosis presenting as meningitis.

Methods:We report a patient who presented to the medical emergency services with signs and symptoms of meningitis, but who was eventually diagnosed with Wegener’s granulomatosis.

The rest of the abstract is here.

What I have to say: WG and other Vasculitis diseases can mimic other diseases. I know of a woman with Bechet’s disease. The doctors thought she had tumors in her brain. After surgery, they discovered lesions caused by Vasculitis disease. After being treated and because of the brain biopsy, she still had problems with walking, talking, and thinking.
