Definition Wegener's granulomatosis is a very rare disease that affects many different organs and systems of the body. It mainly attacks the respiratory system (sinuses, nose, windpipe, and the lungs) and the kidneys. One of the main features of the disease is an inflammation of the blood vessels (vasculitis) Formerly called Wegener's granulomatosis, this condition is one of a group of blood vessel disorders called vasculitis. It slows blood flow to some of your organs. The affected tissues can develop areas of inflammation called granulomas, which can affect how these organs work Wagner's disease is a familial disease of the eye that can cause reduced visual acuity. Wagner's disease was originally described in 1938. This disorder was frequently confused with Stickler syndrome, but lacks the systemic features and high incidence of retinal detachments. Inheritance is autosomal dominant Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's) is a relatively rare disease marked by inflammation of the blood vessels. The condition is potentially life-threatening. In Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's), inflammation damages the walls of small- and medium-sized arteries and veins
Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (formerly called Wegener's) is a rare disease of uncertain cause that can affect people of all ages. It is characterized by inflammation in various tissues, including blood vessels (vasculitis), but primarily parts of the respiratory tract and the kidneys Wegner's Guide to symptoms, diagnosis & treatment Wagner & Wegner are two distinct conditions Wegner's granulomatosis is an uncommon disease, in this the blood vessels are inflamed (vasculitis). This inflammation damages important organs of the body by limiting blood flow to those organs and destroying normal tissue
Wagner syndrome is a hereditary disorder that causes progressive vision loss. The eye problems that lead to vision loss typically begin in childhood, although the vision impairment might not be immediately apparent Wagner syndrome is a disorder of the vitreous and retina, one of a number of so-called hereditary 'vitreoretinal' disorders. The eye is the major organ of involvement although a few patients have been reported with a cleft palate. Early adult cataracts are common and a minority of patients have glaucoma Wagner disease is a connective tissue disorder affecting the collagen and is associated with mutations in the CSPG2 or VCAN gene (5q13-q14). CSPG2 encodes chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan-2, also known as versican. Versican constitutes 5-15% of the total protein content of the vitreous gel Wagner disease / syndrome is a rare hereditary vitreo-retinal disease. It is one of the connective tissue disorders affecting the collagen. The main feature is an 'empty' vitreous that lacks.
Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), previously known as Wegener's granulomatosis, is a rare and life-threatening disorder that restricts the blood flow to several organs, including the lungs,.. Wegener's granulomatosis is an organ- and/or life-threatening autoimmune disease of as yet unknown etiology. The classic clinical triad consists of necrotizing granulomatous inflammation of the upper and/or lower respiratory tract, necrotizing glomerulonephritis, and an autoimmune necrotizing systemic vasculitis affecting predominantly small vessels

This website is a joint initiative of Dutch patients, doctors and researchers involved in Wagner syndrome, formerly known as Wagner disease or degeneratio hyaloideo-retinalis hereditaria Wagner's disease. Wagner's Disease is a familial eye disease of the connective tissue in the eye that causes blindness. Wagner's disease was originally described in 1938. This disorder is frequently confused with Stickler's syndrome, but lacks the systemic features and high incidence of retinal detachments Wagner syndrome is a rare progressive genetic disorder characterized by mild nearsightedness (myopia), degeneration of the thick, jelly-like fluid (vitreous) that fills the center of the eyes and the thin layer of nerve cells (retina) that lines the back of the eye (vitreoretinal degeneration), and distinctive facial features Binswanger's disease (BD), also called subcortical vascular dementia, is a type of dementia caused by widespread, microscopic areas of damage to the deep layers of white matter in the brain.The damage is the result of the thickening and narrowing (atherosclerosis) of arteries that feed the subcortical areas of the brain
Wegener's Disease may be present for months or even years before it is diagnosed, and it can often initially be misdiagnosed as another disease altogether. An early diagnosis of Wegener's Granulomatosis means a better outlook. About half of all Wegener's sufferers will improve with treatment but then go on to relapse (have a 'flare.

Wagner syndrome results from a mutation in the VCAN gene encoding versican (5q14.3), a chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan-2 found in the vitreous among other tissues. It is an autosomal dominant disorder. It has been proposed that erosive vitreoretinopathy (ERVR) is allelic to Wagner's syndrome but it may also simply be a variable expression of the same disorder Wagner syndrome: a genetic condition caused by a mutation in the gene (CSPG2 on chromosome 5) encoding chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan-2, also known as versican. Versican is a substance present in the vitreous body of the eye. Symptoms and signs include changes in the vitreous body of the eye, retinal detachment, cataracts, and poor visual adaptation to dark

It is the purpose of this article to present two families with Wagner's disease (hyaloideo-retinalis degeneratio hereditaria), and to attempt to distinguish this disease from others which may be confused with it.During the past 40 years a small number of articles have appeared in the medical.. Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), formerly known as Wegener's granulomatosis, is a disease that causes swelling and irritation of blood vessels in the kidneys, nose, sinuses, throat and lungs. Swollen blood vessels make it harder for blood to get to the organs and tissues that need it, which can be harmful The CCM is a model of care designing essential elements of chronic disease care. The model provides guidance for a shift from an acute, episodic health system focus to one that is required for effective chronic disease care (Wagner et al. 2002; Bodenheime et al., 2002; Wagner et al., 1996; Wagner et al., 2001; Wagner, Austin, & Von, 1996).

Wagner disease is a connective tissue disorder affecting the collagen and is associated with mutations in the CSPG2 or VCAN gene (5q13-q14). The human VCAN gene contains 15 exons spanning more than 90 kb. One of these, exon 7, is used in an alternative splice variant There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases, including conditions such as celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, and psoriasis. These occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks parts of the human body
