Churg–Strauss syndrome (named after Drs. Jacob Churg and Lotte Strauss) is a autoimmune vasculitis, leading to necrosis. It involves small and medium blood vessels mainly of the lungs, gastrointestinal system, and peripheral nerves, but also affects the heart, skin and kidneys. It is a rare disease that is non-inheritable, non-transmissible.
