Granulomatosis with polyangiitis was first discovered by Peter McBride, a Scottish otolaryngologist, in 1897 when describing a case of rapid destruction of the nose and face. In 1907, Heinz Karl Ernst Klinger added information regarding the anatomical pathology of the disease. However, the full presentation of the disease was later discovered in 2 separate reports in 1936 and 1939 by a German pathologist, Friedrich Wegener. The disease was called pathergic granulomatosis. This led to some confusion with lethal midline granuloma and lymphomatoid granulomatosis. In 1954, it was called as Wegener's granulomatosis, named after a German pathologist, Friedrich Wegener who described the disease in his detailed report published in 1936. As of November 7, 2010, the name Wegener's granulomatosis has been changed to Granulomatosis with polyangiitis by the American College of Rheumatology, American Society of Nephrology, and the European League Against Rheumatism. The association between ANCA and Granulomatosis with polyangiitis was made in 1982.

- In 1907, Heinz Karl Ernst Klinger added information regarding the anatomical pathology of the disease.
- The disease was called pathergic granulomatososis. This led to some confusion with lethal midline granuloma and lymphomatoid granulomatosis.
- In 1954, it was called as Wegener's granulomatosis , named after a German pathologist, Friedrich Wegener who described the disease in his detailed report published in 1936.
- Due to concerns with Wegener's professional conduct, Alexander Woywodt and Eric Matteson abandoned the name and changed to "ANCA-associated granulomatous vasculitis."
- As of November 7, 2010, the name Wegener's granulomatosis has been changed to Granulomatosis with polyangitis by the American College of Rheumatology, American Society of Nephrology, and the European League Against Rheumatism.

Landmark Events in the Development of Treatment Strategies
- In 1973, cyclophosphamide and prednisone was first used by Fauci and Wolf and the disease showed remission.
