Abstract

Hydralazine-induced ANCA-associated vasculitis is a rare clinical entity, with complications including rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, pulmonary hemorrhage, and pulmonary-renal syndrome. We present this case to highlight the clinical features that support this challenging diagnosis and to emphasize the importance of prompt recognition and aggressive intervention given its significant morbidity and mortality.
