Disease Ontology:9 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.

MalaCards: Wegener's Granulomatosis, also known as wegener granulomatosis, is related to polyarteritis nodosa and churg-strauss syndrome, and has symptoms including vascularitis/vasculitides/arteritis, lung/pulmonary/alveolar hemorrhage/hematoma and meningitis/meningeal syndrome. An important gene associated with Wegener's Granulomatosis is WG (Wegener granulomatosis), and among its related pathways are CD28 co-stimulation and Cell adhesion Cell matrix glycoconjugates. The drug cyclophosphamide and the compounds propylthiouracil and gliclazide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, lung and skin, and related mouse phenotypes are liver/biliary system and hematopoietic system.
