Abstract

During the 18th week of a first pregnancy, a 20-year-old old woman visits her physician complaining of cough, sore throat, and hemoptysis of 4 days in duration. A chest radiograph, laboratory study findings including a cytoplasmic antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibody titer, and lung biopsy results were consistent with a limited form of Wegener's granulomatosis. She was treated successfully with prednisone and cyclophosphamide. The remainder of her pregnancy was otherwise uneventful and resulted in a normal labor and delivery of a healthy male infant.
