• A 34-year-old woman had a granulomatous ulceration of the nose that responded to radiation therapy. The limitation of the disease to the nose and the histologic findings were consistent with a diagnosis of midline granuloma, Stewart type. The relationship of midline granuloma to Wegener's granulomatosis is reviewed. In view of the uniform mortality that accompanies untreated midline granuloma, a correct diagnosis must be made so that radiation therapy can be promptly instituted.
