INTRODUCTION: Eosinophilic Granulomatosis with Polyangitis (EGPA, formerly known as Churg Strauss) is a small-medium sized granulomatous vasculitis characterized by late onset asthma, peripheral eosinophilia and systemic vasculitis. It is rare among the vasculitidies, with incidence estimated at approximately 3 new cases per 1 million people per year.1 We present a case of EGPA in a 37-year old woman who presented with a rash and pulmonary infiltrates.
