We report a case of Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) which accompanied a mononeuritis multiplex.

Case Summary: A 46-year-old woman began to suffer from an allergic rhinitis since 1985, and was diagnosed as a bronchial asthma in 1995. She also complained numbness of the upper and lower extremities, which eventually lead to a weakness and edema of both upper and lower extremities. Electrophysiologic study findings were compatible with a mononeuritis multiplex. The skin biopsy revealed a necrosis of the vessels with infiltration of a large number of neutrocytes and lymphocytes.

Based on the patient's clinical characteristic, skin biopsy findings and electrophysiologic study findings, we have concluded that the case fit well for CSS.

Key Words: Churg-Strauss syndrome, Mononeuritis multiplex
