We reviewed 16 cases of WG with regard to CT findings, PR3-ANCA, and clinical courses. Because of PR3-ANCA, atypical manifestations of WG could have been diagnosed, including tiny nodules without symptoms and self-remissions. Radiologists should be aware of these atypical manifestations of WG. Seeing multiple nodules in lung, WG should be included in the differential diagnosis and extrapulmonary manifestation of WG should be evaluated.
