Wegener Granulomatosis (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
After treatment, symptoms of Wegener's granulomatosis can return. Most often, symptoms return within two years of the end of treatment with medications. People with Wegener's granulomatosis should continue to see the doctor regularly.
Some people may develop long-term kidney problems (renal failure) and may need dialysis (a process of medical filtering) or a kidney transplant.
There is no known way to prevent this disorder.
