    Correct answer:

    That's right, it's Wegener's granulomatosis.

    This is an example of a systemic auto immune vasculitis, in which many organs can become affected. Common consequences include acute renal failure, upper airway pathology (e.g. perforated nasal septum or frequent nose bleeds) and the characteristic strawberry gums like in this case.
