  • Allergic Asthma

    Methods Mol Biol. 2017;1559:121-136. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4939-6786-5_10. Author information 1 Laboratory of Immunoregulation and Mucosal Immunology, VIB Inflammation Research Center, Ghent, Belgium. 2 Department of Biomedical Molecular Biology, Ghent University, Ghent, Belgium. 3 Department of Internal Medicine, University[…][]

  • Churg-Strauss Syndrome

    Eosinophilia and pulmonary infiltrates may also be seen in drug reactions, hypereosinophilic syndrome, and occasionally in fungal and tuberculous infections ( 27 ).[] Usually, such patients are not asthmatic. In early CSS, diagnostic gastrointestinal biopsies from any site will show an intense eosinophil infiltrate.[]

  • Tropical Eosinophilia

    Infection fungal Aspergillus fumigatus ( asthmatic pulmonary eosinophilia ) parasitic schistosomiasis (50% have pulmonary involvement) ascaris Toxocara canis microfilariasis[] Abstract The diverse clinical syndromes characterized by asthmatic symptoms, transient pulmonary infiltrates, and eosinophilia have tended to obscure the specific association[] Tropical (pulmonary) eosinophilia, or TPE, is characterized by coughing, asthmatic attacks, and an enlarged spleen, and is caused by Wuchereria bancrofti, a filarial infection[]

  • Aspirin-induced Asthma

    Increased amounts of 15-HETE are also found in asthmatics, and levels of 15-HETE have been associated with pulmonary eosinophilia [ 6 ].[]

  • Chronic Eosinophilic Pneumonia

    Infection fungal Aspergillus fumigatus ( asthmatic pulmonary eosinophilia ) parasitic schistosomiasis (50% have pulmonary involvement) ascaris Toxocara canis microfilariasis[] The syndrome of pulmonary infiltrates with eosinophilia (PIE) occurs rarely in the asthmatic patient.[] Peripheral blood eosinophilia, multiple bilateral pulmonary infiltrates to the x-ray, multiple nodules with a surrounding ground-glass halo and peripheral predominance to[]

  • Lymphatic Filariasis

    […] condition known as tropical pulmonary eosinophilia.[] […] humans may result in the following symptoms: acute fever, lymphadenitis, hydrocele (enlargement of the scrotum), elephantiasis of the limbs and breasts, and a bronchial-asthmatic[]

  • Broncholithiasis

    Pulmonary infiltrates, when coupled with eosinophilia in an asthmatic subject, have raised an initial suspicion of some kind of eosinophilic lung disease such as ABPA, chronic[]

  • Asthmatic Pulmonary Eosinophilia

    Abstract In a series of 65 patients with asthma with pulmonary eosinophilia 54 were adequately investigated for allergic aspergillosis and this was present in 32 (59%). Asthma with pulmonary eosinophilia was found to carry a relatively poor prognosis in terms of permanent symptoms, impairment of pulmonary function[…][]

  • Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis

    Asthmatic pulmonary eosinophilia: a review of 65 cases. Br J Dis Chest 1977 ;71: 115 - 122 12. Capewell S, Chapman BJ, Alexander F, Greening AP, Crompton GK.[] Diagnosis Consider a diagnosis of ABPA in an asthmatic patient with any of the following: a typical clinical presentation as described above; unexplained pulmonary infiltrates[] ; aspergillus isolated from the sputum; persistent high-grade peripheral blood eosinophilia; very high serum IgE level; or a positive aspergillus skin test.[]

  • Eosinophilic Rhinitis

    In the majority of asthmatic patients there is an increasing amount of eosinophils, both in the tissue and in the secretions, and the degree of eosinophilia is related with[] […] lymphoprotein (TSLP) have been evidenced, and activation states of eosinophil ß1 and ß2 integrins have been found to correlate with the measurement of eosinophil recruitment and pulmonary[]
