Churg-Strauss syndrome presenting as an abdominal mass in a non-asthmatic child.
A 2-year-old boy presented with an abdominal mass and was diagnosed as Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS). There was no history of asthma. He developed fatal gastro-intestinal disease, despite treatment with corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide. CSS is extremely rare in young children and gastro-intestinal involvement might carry a worse prognosis than in adults.
