Vasculitides are conventionally classified according to the size of the vessels involved and characteristic clinical and histopathological findings. Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCAs) and other serologies help characterizing small vessel vasculitis. While few cases of large vessel involvement are reported in association with ANCA-associated vasculitis, these reports were in adult patients and lacked typical large vessel involvement. We describe an adolescent girl with focal necrotizing glomerulonephritis and positive serologies for p-or myeloperoxidase ANCA, as well as large vessel arteritis and presence of anti-glomerular basement membrane antibodies. This report highlights the diagnostic difficulties in rare patients presenting with overlap in clinical and serological features of different forms of systemic vasculitis.
