Abstract

Objective: Wegener granulomatosis is a rare autoimmune disease of unknown cause. It commonly affects the respiratory tracts, lungs, and kidneys.

Involvement of the uterine cervix is rare, with only 4 previously published cases in the literature.

Materials and Methods: This is a case report.

Result: We describe the unusual presentation of Wegener granulomatosis involving the uterine cervix, presenting as cervical cancer.

Conclusions: A review of previously published cases of Wegener granulomatosis involving the uterine cervix is presented.

We report the first case of Wegener granulomatosis involving the cervix without antecedent diagnosis or treatment of Wegener granuloma in any other organ.
