Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis Manifested by Cholecystitis and Mononeuritis Multiplex: A Case Report
Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis formerly named “Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS)” is a systemic disease with bronchial asthma, hypereosinophilia, and systemic vasculitis. We report a case of CSS with cholecystitis and mononeuritis multiplex. A 50-year-old woman with a history of sinusitis and bronchial asthma of 8 years’ duration was referred with a complaint of left-hand deformity and difficulty in walking. The laboratory findings included remarkable eosinophilia, an elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a marked eosinophilic infiltration in the gallbladder biopsy. Based on the clinical features and histopathological findings, she was diagnosed with CSS and subsequently treated with prednisolone and cyclophosphamide.
