Granulomatosis with polyangiitis is a small-vessel vasculitis involving the airway, lungs, and kidney. Although subglottic involvement is common in the disease, we present a rare case of supraglottic involvement. The patient presented to us with a complaint of change in the voice for 3 months. Endoscopy showed concentric narrowing of supraglottis. Biopsy revealed small-artery vasculitis. c-ANCA was positive. The Patient responded well to medical therapy.
