This case report describes findings in a 61-yearold woman who manifested scleritis, small pulmonary nodules, otitis media, periaortitis, and progressive epidural spinal tumor, associated with elevated serum myeloperoxidase anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (MPO-ANCA) levels. She was clinically diagnosed with Wegener's granulomatosis, although vasculitis was not diagnosed due to the lack of typical histological findings. We discuss the differential diagnosis in this patient, and the association of MPO-ANCA with periaortitis or epidural spinal tumor.
