Antineutrophil cytoplasmic autoantibodies associated vasculitis(AAV) is characterized by antibodies against antigens in cytoplasmic granules of neutrophils and predominantly affects small vessels. AAV after COVID-19 mRNA vaccination has been reported. We report rare case of AAV in a patient who presented with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis(RPGN) after Johnson & Johnson vaccine administration.
