Abstract

Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a rare disease entity of unknown cause, which is characterized by systemic vasculitis, peripheral eosinophilia, extravascular granulomastosis and chronic atopic disease such as bronchial asthma. However, venous thrombosis is rarely reported in patients with Churg- Strauss syndrome. We report one patient with CSS who experienced obstruction of the hepatic and portal veins (Budd-Chiari syndrome). To our knowledge, this is the first report on the association between CSS and Budd-Chiari syndrome in Korea.
