The patient was symptomatic for hypoglycaemia despite simultaneous use of high-dose prednisolone; however, the hypoglycaemia did not require a hospital admission. Several lines of evidence suggest that leukotriene plays an important role in maintaining neural tissues. Subset analyses were performed for each drug with different medication combinations to differentiate the relative reporting of AGA for each.

Churg Strauss syndrome is a medical condition of unknown aetiology characterized by asthma, eosinophilia and finally vasculitis involving small vessels granupomatosis the limbs and nasal sinuses and the lungs. On the next day, a renal biopsy was performed and histology showed necrotizing vasculitis with cellular crescents.

The journal publishes 6 issues per year, mainly about respiratory system diseases in adults and clinical research.

Churg-Strauss syndrome CSS is a rare small-vessel vasculitis typically associated with adult-onset asthma, peripheral and tissue hypereosinophilia, migratory pulmonary infiltrates, upper respiratory tract symptoms, and clinical evidence of systemic vasculitis.

Clinical presentation of Churg-Strauss syndrome in children. J Rheumatol, 18pp.

The diagnosis was confirmed by a fluorescein angiogram showing absence of retinal filling and normal choroidal filling. Combined with peripheral nerve injury and lung involvement, she was diagnosed as having Churg-Strauss syndrome.

The purposes of our study were to characterize the clinical features of CSS and to identify factors associated with CSS prognosis in Koreans. CSS-associated neuropathy usually involves nerves of the lower limb, and few studies have reported on the involvement of the upper limb alone. Ophthalmoscopic examination revealed a diffusely swollen right optic disc and splinter hemorrhages at its margin. Ischemic stroke is a rare complication of Churg-Strauss syndrome CSS and its pathogenesis has not been well clarified yet.

Upper and lower airways, skin, nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, grahulomatosis, and kidneys are the most commonly involved organs. In contrast, cholecystitis is a rare complication. The lung is the organ most frequently involved. However, it was difficult to control the hemorrhage and maintain hemodynamic stability. A year-old granulo,atosis with a history of asthma arrived at the emergency room of our hospital alerggica dyspnea.

Churg-Strauss syndrome CSS xhurg a rare entity that is characterized by widespread vasculitis, which affects both small and medium-sized blood vessels of nearly all organs.

Immediate heart catheterization revealed a distally gfanulomatosis left anterior descending coronary artery, the occlusion being reversible after nitroglycerine. The possible role of eotaxin-3 and CCR4-related chemokines in selective recruitment of eosinophils to the target tissues in CSS has been recently suggested, but the role of eosinophilic inflammation in the development of vasculitic lesions is not completely understood.
