A 42-year-old man presented with red, painful eyes, facial-nerve palsy on the left side, a large oral ulcer, and petechiae. Tests for antibodies against perinuclear antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody and proteinase 3 were positive. Skin biopsy revealed leukocytoclastic vasculitis with perivascular eosinophils. A diagnosis of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis was made.
