Abstract

A patient with Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) treated for many years with systemic corticosteroids developed a chronic cough with purulent sputum production. Computed tomographic scanning demonstrated widespread bronchiectasis. The bronchiectasis may have arisen as a primary manifestation of the CSS or may have occurred in the context of prolonged immunosuppression.
