VEGA S, Jorge  e  DUCLOS H, Jaime. Late reactivation of Churg-Strauss syndrome. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2006, vol.134, n.1, pp.79-84. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872006000100011.

We report a 22 years old male with chronic allergic rhinitis, who presented with asthma, prolonged fever, eosinophilia, cutaneous vasculitis, subcutaneous nodules, polyarthritis, ulcers in the nasal mucosa and external auditory canal, hematuria, proteinuria, renal failure, severe hypertension, pulmonary infiltrates and mesenteric ischemia with a perforation of the sigmoid colon. Arteriography showed multiple aneurysmae of intrarenal arteries and a skin biopsy showed a leukocytoclastic vasculitis. A diagnosis of Churg-Strauss syndrome was made. He was initially treated with steroids and cyclophosphamide but abandoned therapy. Eighteen years after the onset of the disease, he required hemodialysis. Eight months after being on dialysis, he suffered a reactivation of the disease with lung hemorrhage and finally died, due to an upper gastrointestinal bleeding caused by a duodenal ulcer

Palavras-chave : Aneurysm; Churg-Strauss syndrome; Lung diseases, interstitial; Vasculitis.
