The autors examined the presence and determined numerical density of eosinophilic leukocytes in tumor's stormal and host reaction in twenty routine preparated skin biopsies of basal and squamos cell carcinomas. The presence of eosiophilic leukocytes in squamous cell carcinomas, in stormal and adjacent tumor infiltrate were confirmed, so as the absance on the same localizations in basal cell carcinomas were found. Eosinophilic leukocytes were of caracteristic morphological appereance, smaller of blood and bone marrow eosinophils - the average radius were 9,6 microm, with high level of degranulation, very variable in number (from 1054 to 23560 in mm3) and in close relation with plasma cells, mast cells and lymphocytes...

A 73-year-old man who presented with acute fever, drowsiness and confusion was reported. Two weeks prior to admission, he attended the Outpatient Department with symptoms of fever and headache for 2 weeks. Eosiophilic meningitis was initially diagnosed, which, in fact, was lymphocytic CSF pleocytosis. He was treated with a high dose of prednisolone. His symptoms improved for 1 week, then he experienced symptoms of fever and headache again. On admission, he had stiffness of the neck. Lumbar puncture showed purulent CSF with gram-positive branching filamentous organisms...

UNLABELLED: 1. POLYPOSIS AND ALLERGY: Nasosinusal polyposis and allergy must be considered as two distinct conditions. 2. POLYPOSIS: Approximately 1% of the general population has nasosinusal polyposis, a condition strongly associated with asthma (about one-third of the patients with polyposis have asthma). Patients with nasosinusal should undergo a complete respiratory examination in order to search for asthma or an asthma equivalent. 3. EOSINOPHILS: Eosiophils play a crucial role in the inflammatory reaction, releasing almost all the known inflammatory mediators: cytokines, chemokines and growth factors...

A case of prurigo and lichenified plaques successfully treated with proton pump inhibitor is presented. She presented with pruritic eruptions, which showed marked lichenification and prurigo nodules, on her trunk and extremities. She had been treated with steroid ointment and H1-histamine receptor antagonist without success. Laboratory examinations revealed increased eosiophils and elevated lactate dehydrogenase. The skin biopsy specimen showed moderate acanthosis with spongiosis and lymphocytic and eosinophilic infiltration into the upper dermis...

Eosinophilic granuloma is an unusual lesion which is thought to be a reticulo-endothelial hyperplasia of the bone and which is most frequently encountered in children. First described by Lichtenstein and Jaff, this disease entity was placed into the category of histocytosis X along with Hand-Schuller-Christian and Letter-Siwe disease. More recently eosinophilic granuloma has been classified by some authors as a separate disorder of histocytic proliferation which is localized in bones as solitary and occasional multifocal granulomas...

A 23-year-old woman from the French Antilles was successfully treated for intestinal and hepatic schistosomiasis, as evidenced by the normalization of immunofluorescence titers and many negative histogogical controls. She presented, however, persistent colitis with marked eosinophilia (eosinophils in excess of 50,000/mm3). No precise diagnosis could be established in spite of all parasitological, allergological, hematological and gastroenterological investigations. The colon was the only organ involved and showed colitis of a type unclassifiable both endoscopically and histologically...
