A 25 year old female presented with mononeuritis multiplex and pulmonary symptoms. Investigations revealed the presence of marked peripheral blood eosinophilia. Skin and nerve biopsies were consistent with a diagnosis of Churg Strauss Syndrome. These were characterized by vasculitis of the small arteries and veins and perivascular eosinophilic infiltrates. The patient showed good response to cyclophosphamide and steroids.
