Bilateral uveitis was the initial manifestation of a limited form of Wegener granulomatosis in a 47-year-old man. Diagnosis was established by biopsy of a pulmonary nodule. Subsequently, evidence of lesions developed in the patient's central and peripheral nervous systems, but renal lesions were absent. Pulmonary lesions regressed on therapy with azathioprine and prednisone. Blindness ultimately resulted from retinal phlebitis, vitreous hemorrhages, and neovascular glaucoma.
