We describe a patient with Wegener's granulomatosis (WG) who developed neurological symptoms attributed to meningeal involvement. The diagnosis of WG was complicated by persistently negative antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) and lack of specificity in the histopathological findings from multiple anatomical sites. This rare neurological manifestation of WG was treated successfully with oral cyclophosphamide and the patient has continued remission for 3 years taking oral methotrexate.
