ANCA test checks for the level of Anti Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies in blood. It is a simple blood test and quite easy to perform. However, checking the blood sample for levels of ANCA is a job of highly experienced pathologists only. Testing can be done in laboratories which are well equipped with state-of-the-art machinery.
Anti Neutrophil Cytoplasmic Antibodies are synthesized by the immune system of a person who is suffering from some autoimmune disorders. These antibodies attack the substance of neutrophils which are the most abundantly found white blood cells in human tissues.

People suffering from autoimmune disorders have a faulty immune system which targets the person's own body tissues. By attacking neutrophils, ANC antibodies deteriorate the patient's capability to fight against any harmful influence.
Indications of ANCA test are mentioned below:
Individually, these symptoms are not suggestive of any major underlying disorder. However, in a group, these symptoms indicate towards autoimmune disorders like Wegener granulomatosis and other forms of vasculitis.
The above mentioned symptoms usually do not respond to standard treatment if their underlying cause is any autoimmune disorder. Patients presenting with such a medical history are usually asked to undergo ANCA test.
Patients have to visit a pathology lab for providing a blood sample required for the test. Alternatively, a laboratory technician may visit the patient’s home to collect a sample. A venous blood sample is required to check for ANCA levels. It is withdrawn by injecting a needle into a vein of the forearm. There may be temporary inflammation at the site of injection, which recedes within a few hours.
