Abstract

Granulomatosis with polyangiitis is a rare systemic disease of small and medium vessels of unknown etiology. Virtually, every organ can be affected by the disease, but granulomatosis with polyangiitis mainly attack respiratory tract and kidneys. Cardiac involvement occurs unfrequently, but may be insidious and dangerous. In this article we present a case report of 55 year old female patient with myocardial infarction during the course of granulomatosis with polyangiitis.
