Question: Wegener's

Can you have Wegeners with a negative ANCA?

User avatar Hi Pt_I_am,

There are cases of ANCA negative Wegener's reported in the literature. They are much less common than ANCA + Wegener's.

If Wegener's is being considered, seeing a rheumatologist can help in making the diagnosis.

Best wishes.
