Serious illness: Wegner's granulomatous angiitis is caused by antibodies against a particular protein in neutrophils. Once uniformly fatal, it is now usually managed with strong medications by specialists. The eyes, ears, throat, lungs and kidneys are the usual targets. Wegener's greatness as a physician is tarnished by his having served the third reich, though not in the death camps; some avoid his name.
