Hon-Ru Yu, Ming-Tao Chuan, Chih-Yu Hsu
Dermatol Sinica 18: 350-355, 2000

Churg-Strauss syndrome is an unuasual disease. We report a 23-year-old female with recent onset of asthma, peripheral eosinophilia, and cutaneous hemorrhagic papules. Chest X-ray film showed pulmonary infiltration. Nerve conduction velocity study showed mononeuritis multiplex. Histopathologic examination of lesional skin showed granulomatous vasculitis with eosinophilic infiltration. The clinicopathological features were typical for Churg-Strauss syndrome.
