    Abstract

    Eight patients who had limited forms of Wegener's granulomatosis are described, with details of their pathology. Ocular pathological data were available for 2 of them. The condition carries a serious ocular risk; useful vision was lost in 6 out of 16 eyes (37%). An indolent but slowly progressive marginal keratitis and scleritis was a prominent feature in 4 patients and was helpful in suggesting the diagnosis. Limited froms of Wegener's granulomatosis carry a better prognosis and response to treatment than the classical disease.
