Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis EGPA, previously named Churg-Strauss syndrome is a form of necrotizing vasculitis occurring in patients with asthma and eosinophilia. We report the case of a young woman with severe acute myocarditis. This classification helps predict PFT data, underlying histopathology, and treatment response. Chest,pp. She was referred to our hospital with history of recurrent stridor.

In contrast, cholecystitis is a rare complication. Sural nerve biopsy showed a characteristic necrotizing vasculitis of the epineural vessels with granulocyte and eosinophil infiltrates.

We describe a case of hypoglycaemia shortly following initiation of cotrimoxazole indicated as long-term prophylaxis on a background of Churg-Strauss syndrome. A year-old woman was hospitalized because of bronchial asthma and a high myeloperoxidase antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody MPO-ANCA level.

We herein describe a new severe asthma endotype in connection with CSS. A year-old male presented with sensory motor polyneuropathy and rapidly progressive renal failure. Although cardiovascular involvement is usually an early manifestation, it can also occur later in the course of the disease.

Churg-Strauss syndrome: a case report

In addition, owing to the risk of complications associated with the frequent use of iodinated contrast df and angiography procedures, patient was followed up using MRI. The patient had fulfilled five clinical diagnostic criteria and responded well to immunosuppressive therapy, so this case could be classified as the ANCA negative angiitis and granulomatous of CSS type.

Serum biomarkers are similar in Churg-Strauss syndrome and hypereosinophilic syndrome. We report a year-old female with cutaneous involvement by Churg-Strauss syndrome confined to surgical scars that were obtained 13 years before. Histopathologically, we focused on the presence or absence of vasculitic features. Cardiac manifestations are common causing serious complications. Overall survival of Grabulomatosis patients is good, despite not uncommon relapses.

Histologically, we find vasculitic features in typical presentations of Wells’ syndrome. Extensive work-up revealed CSS. This syndrome is known by a history of bronchial asthma with systemic necrotizing vasculitis and peripheral blood hypereosinophilia. A subsequent coronary angiogram revealed normal epicardial coronaries. An operation, including ligation and excision of the CAs, and coronary artery bypass grafting was performed under general anesthesia and cardiopulmonary bypass.

Vasculitic features were found in the samples of all patients. Churg-Strauss syndrome with concomitant occurrence of ischemic stroke and relapsing purpura.
