The man, who was diagnosed with upper airways-limited granulomatosis with polyangiitis in 2009 and treated with prednisone 5 mg/day and methotrexate 20 mg/week, was admitted to the hospital due to acute kidney injury. On admission, his laboratory examinations were found significant for increased creatinine level, mild anaemia, proteinurea, haematuria and an elevated antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (PR3-ANCA) titre. His renal biopsy showed rapidly progressive necrotising granulomatous glomerulonephritis. As a result, he received IV pulse-dose methylprednisolone 1 g/day for three days, followed by oral prednisone 1 mg/kg, followed by cyclophosphamide pulse 1g (to be repeated once a month for six months) as induction remission therapy. His systemic symptoms resolved; however, renal function did not improve. He was discharged with prednisone 50 mg/day with gradual tapering and also received cotrimoxazole [trimethoprim- sulfamethoxazole] for prophylaxis of Pneumocystis jirovecii. On day 40, he was admitted to receive second pulse of cyclophosphamide as planned.
