Wegener's granulomatosis is a form of necrotizing vasculitis. Radiological examination, open lung biopsy and Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are the standard methods to arrive at a diagnosis. Experience with fine needle aspiration diagnosis are however limited. We herewith present one such case report where the diagnosis was suggested primarily by FNAC and subsequently confirmed by anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) positivity thus obviating the need for an open lung biopsy.
