Résumé : Wegener's granulomatosis is a rare autoimmune disease characterized by a vasculitis affecting mainly the mucosa of the respiratory tract. Necrosis of the septal mucosa may result in septal perforation and collapse of the cartilaginous part of the nose. Medical treatment of the disease with cyclophosphamides and cortisone usually results in stabilization of the lesions. Until now, surgical correction of the nasal deformities has not been published. We present 2 patients who were operated upon for nasal reconstruction; one without medical treatment, the other after remission of the disease. Techniques and results are presented. © 1992 Springer-Verlag.
