抜粋

We describe a case of hypertrophic cranial pachymeningitis (HCP) associated with Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) in a 60-year-old man presenting with chronic headache and multiple cranial nerve neuropathies. A test for antibodies to the neutrophil cytoplasmic protein myeloperoxidase (MPO-ANCA) was positive in this case. We review the literature on perinuclear (p)-ANCA-related HCP, including our case. This case indicates the link between MPO-ANCA-positive WG and HCP.
