Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangiitis - EGPA

Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), formerly Churg-Strauss, is distinguishable from other pulmonary eosinophil-associated syndromes by the presence of eosinophilic vasculitis in concert with asthma and multiorgan involvement (lungs, heart, gastrointestinal tract, skin, nervous system). It is categorized as small- to medium-vessel ANCA-associated vasculitis (Chapel Hill 2012).
