Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 64-year-old man had slowly progressive thickening of the bulbar and palpebral conjunctiva of the right eye, followed by signs and symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. A biopsy specimen of the conjunctival lesions demonstrated granulomatous inflammation with eosinophils compatible with a diagnosis of Churg-Strauss syndrome (asthma, eosinophilia, vasculitis, and granulomatous inflammation with eosinophils). Subsequently, fever, shortness of breath, moderate renal failure, and anemia developed. Therapy with systemic corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide was instituted, with resolution of the systemic and ocular manifestations.
