Granulomatosis with polyangiitis, earlier known as Wegener's granulomatosis, is an autoimmune vascular disorder in which small- and medium-sized vessels are affected. Anaesthetic management depends on the extent to which various organs are involved. Subglottic stenosis can complicate this autoimmune vascular condition which can become a challenging airway situation for anaesthesiologists, particularly when administering general anaesthesia.
