Abstract: Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA), formerly known as Wegener's Granulomatosis, is a rare form of vasculitis affecting small-sized blood vessels in the upper respiratory tract (nose, sinuses, trachea, ears), lower respiratory tract (bronchus and lungs) and kidneys with estimated prevalence of 3 per 100000. Pregnancy associated with Wegener's granulomatosis is rare. Here we present a case of a 25 years old pregnant female with complains of not perceiving fetal movements, epistaxis, scanty haemoptysis, cough and fever. Initially patient was misdiagnosed as Pulmonary Koch's, but further study revealed it to be a Wegener's Granulomatosis.
