Abstract

Although antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA) vasculitis has a variety of clinical manifestations, valvular compromise is not common, especially in anti-myeloperoxidase (anti-MPO) antibody (perinuclear [P]-ANCA) vasculitis. We report the case of a 38-year-old woman with ANCA-associated vasculitis who was diagnosed with valve vegetation, that resolved with immunosuppressive therapy.

Keywords:
Vasculitis

Antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis
Resumen

Aunque las vasculitis asociadas a ANCA tienen manifestaciones clínicas diversas, la afección valvular es infrecuente, especialmente en el contexto de una poliangitis microscópica. Reportamos el caso de una mujer de 38 años con vasculitis ANCA con características clínicas de poliangitis microscópica y anticuerpos anti-mieloperoxidasa positivos (MPO), que presentó una masa vegetante en la válvula mitral que resolvió con inmunosupresión.

Palabras clave:
