A woman aged 47, came to the outpatient clinic of ENT, with difficulty of nose breathing. With anterior rhinoscopy we found polyps in the nose. One year ago she appeared to have bronchial asthma and two months ago petechiaes on the legs. Biopsy of the skin showed allergic angiitis and granulomatosis. After she received steroids, skin lesions and bronchial asthma disappeared. In this paper, we present this case of Churg-Strauss syndrome because of its very rare appearance in Otorhinolaryngology. A discussion follows which includes the relative informational bibliography.
