INTRODUCTION: Granulomatosis with polyangitis (GPA) is a rare, multiorgan, autoimmune disorder that leads to granulomatous lesions and necrotizing vasculitis predominantly affecting the respiratory tract and kidneys. In the respiratory tract, it can present with signs and symptoms of cough, sinusitis, and new pulmonary nodules. Multiple pulmonary nodules in a patient with a known primary malignancy greatly increases the likelihood of those nodules being malignant.
