Answer

The vasculitic phase usually develops within 3 years after the onset of asthma, although it may be delayed for several decades. The most prominent symptoms and signs are those related to pulmonary, cardiac, dermatologic, renal, and peripheral nerve involvement. Mononeuritis multiplex is a major clinical finding.
