Abstract

Churg-Strauss disease (CSD) is a rare allergic disorder that is associated with vasculitis, peripheral eosinophilia and allergic asthma. We report on successful liver transplantation in a patient with CSD who suffered from chronic hepatitis C. Recurrent hepatitis C and CSD were ultimately managed by the application of pegylated interferon.
