MOSAVIR ANSARIE

Abstract


This brief resume of the syndrome of pulmonary eosinophilia is an attempt to draw the attention of fellow physicians to the local relevance of the problem in terms of it's association with refractory asthma, the apparent under diagnosis of aspergillosis and other fungal infections in the community and the possibility of tropical eosinophilia specifically in the trickling mass of Bangla Deshi emigrants settled in certain areas of Karachi. The possibility of eosinophilic features on the Chest X-Ray must also be kept in mind as an important differential diagnosis to Pulmonary Tuberculosis and vice versa..
