Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA; old name -Churg- Strauss syndrome) is a necrotizing vasculitis that affects small and medium-sized vessels. EGPA refers to systemic vasculitis associated with antibodies to the cytoplasm of neutrophils (ANCA), i.e. is an autoimmune disease. The characteristic features of EGPA that distinguish it from other vasculitis are moderate to severe bronchial asthma, high eosinophilia and eosinophilic tissue infiltration.The disease can affect several organs and systems, and patients often have an atopic background.
Allergies and angiitis are the two main symptoms of the disease. Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis can be diagnosed if, in addition to signs of vasculitis, four of the following six features are present: asthma, eosinophilia, neuropathy, pulmonary infiltrates, paranasal sinus lesions, and eosinophilic vasculitis. Eosinophilia above 10% is pathognomonic for patients with Churg-Strauss syndrome and can reach 75% of the peripheral blood cell count.
