122 Possible Causes for Löffler Syndrome

  • Atopy

    Atopy or atopic syndrome refers to the genetic predisposition to develop hypersensitivity reactions to allergens. Atopy is characterized by allergic rhinitis, asthma, and atopic dermatitis. Allergic shiners or dark circles under the eyes and nasal crease across the lower half of the bridge are very common features[…][]

  • Asthma

    History A detailed assessment of the medical history should address the following: Whether symptoms are attributable to asthma Whether findings support the likelihood of asthma (eg, family history) Asthma severity Identification of possible precipitating factors Family history may be pertinent for asthma, allergy,[…][]

  • Pulmonary Edema

    Pulmonary edema is a clinical term that refers to the abnormal buildup of fluids within the lung tissues that causes physiological disturbances to the patient. Patients usually present with severe left sided heart failure with pulmonary hypertension and alveolar flooding in the lungs. Pulmonary edema from different[…][]

  • Bacterial Pneumonia

    Two male homosexuals with laboratory features of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome developed fulminating pneumonia requiring mechanical ventilatory support despite antibiotic therapy. Pathology consistent with bacterial pneumonia without other opportunistic pathogens were found at open lung biopsy. Cultures[…][]

  • Extrinsic Allergic Alveolitis

  • Löffler Syndrome

    Löffler syndrome is very rare in neonates and its diagnosis is often made fortuitously likely in this case.[] We present a patient with migratory pulmonary infiltrates and eosinophilia consistent with Löffler's syndrome. Our review uncovered two other similar patients.[] Löffler's syndrome itself will cause breathlessness, coughing as well as a fever.[]

  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

    However, review of the pertinent evidence is not thought to support this concept; rather, it suggests an association with Löffler's syndrome and Löffler's endocarditis parietalis[] Löffler's syndrome ( ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code J82 Pulmonary eosinophilia, not elsewhere classified 2016 2017 2018 2019 Billable/Specific Code Applicable To Allergic pneumonia[] To emphasize that such patients are part of a continuum, we propose the term "hypereosinophilic syndromes" to encompass the entire group.

Similar cases published in the Japanese literature were reviewed and discussed.[]

  • Ascariasis

    A 53-year-old woman presented with the complaints of abdominal pain on right upper quadrant, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. Her physical exam was unremarkable except for right upper quadrant tenderness. Abdominal ultrasound revealed a tubular, mobile, non-shadowing echogenic structure within the[…][]
