Case Report


A 24 years old man with known history of asthma came with acute presentation of ascending weakness for four days following flu like symptoms and worsening of asthma. His complete blood counts showed elevated eosinophil count. Nerve conduction showed neuropathy. He was diagnosed as Churg Strauss syndrome due to presence of asthma, eosinophilia, neuropathy and pulmonary infiltrates. Churg Strauss is a systemic eosinophilic vasculitis involving multiple organ systems that may present with neuropathy, as in this case.
