Answer

Except for fever, the physical findings in EGPA are specific to organ-system involvement. Pulmonary involvement is the most prominent. In fact, a pneumonitis plus eosinophilia warrants consideration of this syndrome and a search for evidence of systemic vasculitis elsewhere. [3] In addition to asthma and eosinophilia, a dermato-pulmonary-renal syndrome is the feature of this disease. Mononeuritis multiplex is common.
