Abstract:
Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) is a systemic vasculitic condition that commonly affects the lung and kidneys. With improvement in medical therapy, airway complications are increasingly encountered and are difficult to manage. Here, we present a case whereby a patient presenting with airway complication is successfully treated with surgery.
