SŁOWA KLUCZOWE:
STRESZCZENIE ARTYKUŁU:
Wegener’s granulomatosis is an autoimmune disease characterized by necrotizing granulomatous inflammation of small vessels. This condition concerns the upper and lower airways, kidneys, and eyes. In 50% of cases the disease affects skin, leading to the formation of non-healing skin ulcers. In this article, the case of a 23-year-old patient is presented who was diagnosed with Wegener’s granulomatosis on skin around the right outer ear, infiltration of the mucosa of the mouth and facial asymmetry. In treatment, apart from steroid pulses and immunosuppressive therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy was used, which led to a very good therapeutic effect, and total regression of skin lesions.
