Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) is a rare multisystemic disorder that can be fatal if left untreated. EGPA is characterized by moderate-to-severe asthma, peripheral blood eosinophilia, mononeuropathy or polyneuropathy, pulmonary infiltrates, paranasal sinus abnormalities, and extravascular eosinophils or eosinophilic vasculitis. Optimal treatment involves accurate diagnosis of the condition, keeping abreast of novel and emerging therapies, and a multidisciplinary approach. This web broadcast features two experts in EGPA as they aim to give a greater understanding into the recognition, diagnosis, and individualized management of EGPA. The event concludes with a practicum discussion to connect the data with real-life application. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Describe the pathophysiology of eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA) and its relationship to novel therapeutic targets, Recognize the importance of a multidisciplinary approach in diagnosing and managing patients with EGPA, Apply evidence-based approaches to diagnose and differentiate EGPA from other eosinophilic disorders, Develop individualized treatment plans for patients with EGPA based on the latest clinical data.
