A 47 year-old woman with Wegener's granulomatosis presented with an atypical onset of multiple symmetric cranial cranial nerve involvement. The diagnosis was established by clinical examination and laboratory data. To our knowledge, this is the first case of Wegener's granulomatosis presenting with bilateral multiple symmetric cranial neuropathies.
