Résumé
Wegener's granulomatosis is a systemic disease characterized by necrotizing granulomas and vasculitis involving the upper and lower respiratory tract as well as the kidneys. Cutaneous manifestations consist mainly of papules or papulonecrotic lesions. c-ANCA are known to be a valuable adjunct for the diagnosis and follow-up of Wegener's granulomatosis with systemic involvement. We report the case of a 49-year-old man with Wegener's granulomatosis who developed two relapses of the disease with cutaneous manifestation and who presented with concomitant elevation of the c-ANCA and more precisely the subset PR3-ANCA during the acute phase of the disease.
