Wegener’s + RA treated without Cytoxan.

Posted Jan 15 2009 5:54pm
I found this case report — and was stoked — while seeking some information about Wegener’s diagnoses combined with other auto-immune issues (Crohn’s specifically):Limited Wegener’s granulomatosis presenting as lung nodules in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis

The short of the long here is that the doctors learned to treat this patient differently (less caustically) as her Wegener’s symptoms were present only in the lungs. Weekly methotrexate and low dose prednisone found the patient with considerable improvement. More here: 7thspace.com
