We report a case of eosinophilic GPA (EGPA) presenting with persistent hiccoughs. The diagnosis was based on clinical and histological findings. Induction treatment with corticosteroids led to clinical improvement and rapid resolution of hiccoughs. Hiccoughing has never before been associated with acute EGPA and may reflect involvement of the phrenic and/or vagus nerves.
