  Churg Strauss Syndrome (CSS) is an autoimmune condition that causes inflammation of small and medium-sized blood vessels. It is a non-infectious systemic vasculitis, which affects mainly the lungs but also other tissues and organs. CSS is considered a highly variable condition in terms of its presentation and its course. The most serious complication of the vasculitic stage is congestive heart failure with reduced ejection fraction. We present a case with first diagnosed heart failure because of CSS and review of the literature.
