It differs from Leffler syndrome by a longer (over 4 weeks) and severe course, up to severe intoxication, fever, weight loss, the appearance of a pleural effusion with a high content of eosinophils (Lehrer-Kindberg syndrome). A long course of pulmonary eosinophilia, as a rule, is the result of a short-term, thorough examination of the patient in order to identify its cause.

In addition to the causes of simple pulmonary eosinophilia, other diseases can be the basis of this syndrome: rheumatoid arthritis, periarthritis nodosa, cancer of the stomach, lungs, thyroid gland, uterus, lymphogranulomatosis, and other hemoblastosis.

Thus, the diagnosis of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia should be considered as a syndrome and a basis for a thorough diagnostic search.

  1. Chronic pneumonia
    Chronic pneumonia is a chronic nonspecific bronchopulmonary process, based on irreversible morphological changes in the form of bronchial deformities and pneumosclerosis in one or several segments and accompanied by recurrent inflammation in the lung tissue and / or bronchi. Essentially a similar definition is currently given by therapists. It is believed that under chronic pneumonia
  2. Chronic and chronic pneumonia in children
    Questions for repetition: 1. Normal indicators of the study of the function of external respiration in children: Shtange's test, Gencha, spirography, peak flowmetry. 2. Types of dyspnea Test questions: 1. The concept of prolonged pneumonia, predisposing factors and pathogenesis of prolonged pneumonia. 2. Clinical characteristics, course and diagnosis of prolonged pneumonia. 3. What are the factors (congenital and acquired)
  3. Chronic pneumonia
    -respiratory syndrome: cough almost constant with sputum in the morning; toxic syndrome of 1–3 degrees during exacerbation; chronic intoxication syndrome - bronchial obstruction - syndrome is possible - respiratory failure 1-2 degrees - BLS: locally - with primary pneumonia, diffuse - with secondary (more often) - shortening of percussion sound in the affected areas of the lungs, respiratory changes in them,
    - chronic lesion of the parenchyma and interstitium of the lung, developing in place of unresolved acute pneumonia, limited to a segment (segments) or lobes (lobes) and manifested by clinically repeated outbreaks of the inflammatory process in the affected part of the lung. The main clinical manifestations of complaints of cough with a small amount of sputum, sometimes bloody, shortness of breath, pain in
  5. Eosinophilic lung infiltration
    Eosinophilic infiltration is characterized by a number of lung diseases, which are apparently of an immunological nature. The causes and pathogenesis of these diseases are different. There are 4 forms, simple pulmonary eosinophilia, or Leffler syndrome (W. Loeffler); tropical microfilaria-induced eosinophilia (see chapter 14); secondary chronic pulmonary eosinophilia (occurs in multiple
  6. Eosinophilic non-allergic rhinitis
    Its prevalence among adult patients with chronic non-infectious rhinitis is 15%, among children - less than 5%. In some patients with eosinophilic non-allergic rhinitis, an aspirin triad is observed. Although clinically eosinophilic non-allergic rhinitis resembles allergic rhinitis, skin tests and the determination of the level of specific IgE give negative results. In the study
  7. Pneumonitis caused by food and vomit. Aspiration pneumonia
    ICD-10 cipher J69.0 Diagnostics When making a diagnosis Mandatory Level of consciousness, frequency and effectiveness of respiration, heart rate, blood pressure, CVP, body temperature, skin condition R-graphy of the ECG chest organs Laboratory studies: hemoglobin, erythrocytes, leukocytes, formula blood, total protein, bilirubin, urea, creatinine, electrolytes, enzymes, blood clotting rates
  8. Pneumonia Acute pneumonia.
    In pregnant women, pneumonia is often more severe due to the decrease in the respiratory surface of the lungs, the high standing of the diaphragm, which limits the excursion of the lungs, and the additional load on the cardiovascular system. The clinical picture of acute pneumonia does not differ from that of non-pregnant. With the development of pneumonia, shortly before childbirth, development should be postponed whenever possible.
  9. Chronic glomerulonephritis in children. Acute and chronic renal failure
    Questions for repetition: 1. Samples used to study the functional state of the kidneys. Test questions: 1. Definition, etiopathogenesis of chronic glomerulonephritis. 2. Classification of chronic glomerulonephritis. 3. The clinical picture and laboratory diagnosis of various forms of chronic glomerulonephritis. 4. Differential diagnosis of chronic glomerulonephritis. 5. Kidney biopsy
    In recent years, due to the deteriorating environmental situation, the prevalence of smoking, changes in the reactivity of the human body, there has been a significant increase in the incidence of chronic nonspecific lung diseases (COPD). The term COPD was adopted in 1958 in London at a symposium convened by the pharmaceutical concern Ciba. He combined such diffuse diseases
  11. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils (chronic tonsillitis)
    In children, the disease occurs frequently. Prerequisites for the development of chronic tonsillitis are anatomical, physiological and histological features, the presence of microflora in the lacunae, the violation of protective and adaptive mechanisms in the almond tissue. Most often chronic tonsillitis begins after a sore throat. The inflammatory process in the tissues of the tonsils becomes chronic.
  12. Chronic inflammation of the tonsils - chronic tonsillitis
    Chronic tonsillitis (tonsillitis chronica) is a common infectious disease with the localization of a chronic focus of infection in the palatine tonsils with occasional exacerbations due to angina. It is characterized by a violation of the general reactivity of the organism caused by the flow of toxic infectious agents from the tonsils into the organism. Exacerbations of chronic tonsillitis (sore throats) when contagious
    Pneumonia is an acute infectious disease characterized by a focal lesion of the respiratory parts of the lungs with intraalveolar exudation, detected by an objective and X-ray examination, expressed in varying degrees by a febrile reaction and intoxication. The division of pneumonia into community-acquired and nosocomial (hospital,
