Author(s): Asif Islam, Fatima Khurshid, Rana Zohaib Munawar, Tooba Fatima, Muhammad Yaser Imran


Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), also known as Wegener's granulomatosis, is a rare autoimmune illness characterized by necrotizing granulomatous inflammation with vasculitis of small to medium-sized blood vessels. GPA primarily affects the upper and lower respiratory tracts, as well as the kidneys, although it can also impact other organs and systems. GPA with neurological involvement is infrequent, and sensory motor neuropathy is a rare manifestation. The purpose of this case report is to present the clinical characteristics, diagnostic workup, therapy, and outcomes of a patient with sensory motor neuropathy as the early manifestation of GPA.
