Abstract

Purpose: To report a case of Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis (GPA) with a fulminant
phenotype characterized by diverse ocular and systemic manifestations.
Methods: Case report and literature comparison.
Results: we report the case of a 58 years old male patient with diagnosis of GPA, who presented with atypical ocular manifestations concomitant with systemic compromise thath led to severe and fulminant progression of the disease.
