六種症狀..能夠想到什麼??

1. asthma
2. eosinophilia
3. mononeuropathy
4. non-fixed pulmonary infiltrates
5. paranasal abnormality
6. extravascular eosinophils

= Churg-Strauss Syndrome

這是一種罕見的疾病,每年每百萬人只有2~4個case..(夠少了吧)..

該疾病通常可以分為3期..分別為allergic rhinitis或是asthma,接著是eosinophilia..最終可能演變成life-threatening vasculitis..

通常會被診斷為asthma..因而使用corticosteroids治療..剛好該疾病症狀可以以\steroid改善..但通常在降低steroid劑量後復發 (asthma不會這樣吧..)

有報告指出使用leukotriene-modifier會誘發該疾病症狀..
