MedlinePlus:35 Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (gpa), previously known as wegener's granulomatosis, is a rare disease. it is a type of vasculitis, or inflammation of the blood vessels. the inflammation limits the flow of blood to important organs, causing damage. it can affect any organ, but it mainly affects the sinuses, nose, trachea (windpipe), lungs, and kidneys. the cause of gpa is unknown. it can affect people at any age. men and women are equally affected. it is more common in whites. symptoms may include joint pain, weakness, tiredness, and cold symptoms such as a runny nose that doesn't get better. doctors use blood tests, chest x-rays, and biopsies to diagnose gpa and rule out other causes of the symptoms. early treatment is important. most people improve with medicines to slow or stop the inflammation. nih: national institute of allergy and infectious diseases
MalaCards based summary: Wegener Granulomatosis, also known as granulomatosis with polyangiitis, is related to asthma and sleep disorder, and has symptoms including abnormality of the oral cavity, sinusitis and epistaxis. An important gene associated with Wegener Granulomatosis is WG (Wegener Granulomatosis), and among its related pathways are LDL Oxidation in Atherogenesis and C-MYB transcription factor network. The drug cyclophosphamide has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lung, kidney and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and cardiovascular system.
Disease Ontology:10 An autoimmune disease that is a vasculitis that is located in lung, located in kidney, located in skin resulting from an autoimmune attack by antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies against small and medium-size blood vessels.
Genetics Home Reference:23 Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) is a condition that causes inflammation that primarily affects the respiratory tract (including the lungs and airways) and the kidneys. This disorder is also commonly known as Wegener granulomatosis. A characteristic feature of GPA is inflammation of blood vessels (vasculitis), particularly the small- and medium-sized blood vessels in the lungs, nose, sinuses, windpipe, and kidneys, although vessels in any organ can be involved. Polyangiitis refers to the inflammation of multiple types of vessels, such as small arteries and veins. Vasculitis causes scarring and tissue death in the vessels and impedes blood flow to tissues and organs.
NIH Rare Diseases:45 Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (wegener's) is a type of vasculitis, or inflammation of the blood vessels. this limits the flow of blood to important organs, causing damage. it can affect any organ, but it mainly affects the sinuses, nose, trachea (windpipe), lungs and kidneys. symptoms can vary in nature and severity, and may include sinus pain; discolored or bloody fluid from the nose; nasal ulcers; constant runny nose (rhinorrhea); joint pain; weakness; tiredness; and/or skin lesions. the cause of granulomatosis with polyangiitis is unknown. early treatment is important. most people improve with medicines to slow or stop the inflammation. last updated: 5/25/2015
