MRSA and Pseudomonas from sinus. current dx Churg-Strauss Syndrome
Wife recently admitted for arrythmia with chronic cough.  Also with chest pain (costal chondritis?) and odd swelling sub-lingual and underlying jaw or neck areas.  Lemon drops no help.  Subsequent tests done include bronchoscopy, echo cardiogram, sinus and chest CT.  After sinus surgery, put on steroids. Still on beta blockers from preceding ER visit.  Pulmonologist thinking then: Churg-Strauss.  Just yesterday report of finding MRSA and pseudomonas.  Put on correct anti-biotic.  After 5 days discharge feeling better, slow to regain stamina, poor sleep.   Follow-ups pending for both Pulmonologist and ENT.  Wondering if diagnosis less dire than the vasculitis.  Spoke to her allergist yesterday about the course and he thinks might be more sinus source than asthma (component in dx of Churgs).  Wonder how soon should have eosinophills rechecked (at top were 11,000 to 21,000 WBC ct.)


This discussion is related to pseudomonas and chronic sinus.
