Abstract

Due to the high prevalence of kidney involvement, patients with systemic autoimmune disorders, also including small vessel vasculitides are frequently seen in nephrology centers. Activated neutrophils attacking the wall of various blood vessel are key features in these diseases, leading to bleeding, occlusion, ischaemia and tissue necrosis. This latter finding is reflected in the term necrotising vasculitis. In this paper, we present a case of eosinophil ganulomatous polyangiitis (EGPA, formerly called Churg-Strauss syndrome), the least common form of ANCA associated small vessel vasculitides. We found it very interesting but not uncommon that our patient was admitted to the nephrology ward with vague symptoms that became more and more suggestive and typical for vasculitis during our observation, guiding us to the right diagnosis. Timely and appropriate immunosuppressive therapy based on immunology lab report and histology findings resulted in good response and remission of the disease in our patient.
