ABSTRACT
El síndrome de Chürg Strauss fue descrito en 1951, y consiste fundamentalmente en un cuadro de asma, fiebre, hipereosinofilia y vasculitis (1). En 1990 luego de varias propuestas de clasificación, el Colegio Americano de Reumatología definió sus criterios diagnósticos (2). Recientemente, en el Hospital Militar Central de Bogotá, Colombia, recibimos una paciente de 55 años con vasculitis leucocitoclástica, disnea sibilante, sinusitis aguda, infiltrados pulmonares e hipereosinofilia, la cual cumple con los criterios del síndrome de Chürg Strauss.Chürg-Strauss Syndrome was described in 1951 and it is characterized by asthma, fever, hypereosinophilia and vasculitis. In 1990, following the discussion of several proposals for its classification, the American College of Rheumatology established its diagnostic criteria. A 55 year-old female patient was seen recently at the Military Hospital in Bogotá, Colombia, with leucocytoclastic vasculitis, wheezing, pulmonary infiltrates and hypereosinophilia, who met all the criteria to be classified as a Chürg-Strauss patient.
