    Five patients with Wegner's granulomatosis were found to have significantly raised serum immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels. The rise in IgE was not related to the extent of clinical involvement, was not part of a generalized serum immunoglobulin rise, and was not associated with eosinophilia. Raised serum IgE may be a clue to the pathogenesis of this disease.
