A live intraocular nematode was identified from a 37 year-old man presented with iritis, pain, redness, lacrimation, swelling, vision loss and intermittent blindness during many hours per day of the left eye. By using slit lamp examination, a worm was removed from iris in an ophthalmology outpatient department setting and sent to the Medical Microbiology Laboratory, Institut Pasteur du Cambodge. Gnathostoma spinigerum was identified, based on its typical morphology via microscopic examination. Based on our diagnosis, the patient was treated by oral albendazole and responded well to this therapy...

Hypereosinophilia is characterized by chronic increase of peripheral blood eosinophiles with common damage to vari-ous organs due to eosinophilic infiltration and release of mediators. Hypereosinophilia should be both reactive and clonal, and accompanies group of heterogeneous disorders (infectious, pulmonary, immunologic, malignant). Based on recent advances in molecular and genetic diagnostic techniques and increasing experience with differences in clinical features and prognosis, some subtypes of clonal hypereosinophilic syndromes have been defined, such as myeloproliferative variants, including chronic eosinophilic leukemia, and lymphocytic variants, but other subtypes remain undefined...

This article presents human diseases where the main etiological factor is hypereosinophily: eosinophilic cystitis - EC, eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders - EGID, which includes eosinophilic esophagitis - EE, and eosinophilic gastritis - EG, and finally nasal polyps - NP. A particular stress is put on the absence of correlations between circular hypereosinophily and presence of the described diseases.

Hyperimmunoglobulin-E syndrome (HIES) is a rare immunodeficiency disorder that is characterized by elevated serum concentration of IgE, eosinophilia and severe, recurrent bacterial and fungal infections. Poor regulation of immune system is evident, with decreased production of cytokines, especially interferon. Production of specific antibodies to capsular polysaccharide antigens is decreased Skeletal malformations have been reported in these patients. They can be caused by excessive production of interleukin-4, which may lead to pathologic bony tissue resorption...

Diffuse idiopathic pneumonia with alveolar filling gather disorders whose clinical and radiological aspects are varied. It is important to precisely identify them because of the prognostic and therapeutic implications suitable for each one of them. Among these, it is necessary to distinguish the eosinophilic pneumonias, wether acute or chronic, which are characterized by circulating and (or) alveolar hypereosinophilies; the diffuse alveolar haemorrhages whose potential severity requires an early recognition in order to institute a treatment without delay; the pulmonary alveolar phospholipoproteinosis can be easily evoked because of their particular radiological features, associated with a lactescent aspect of bronchoalveolar lavage...

Authors report one case of a non typical Eales' disease associated to an hypereosinophily. None etiology was found nosology and physiopathology of Eales' syndrome and Eales' disease are still unclear. Main element of diagnosis is the discovery of a general pathology.

Realized in French Polynesia among 274 patients with elephantiasis, this survey studied the microfilaremia, the eosinophily, the immunoglobulin titers and the antifilarian antibodies (done by passive hemagglutination) for Wuchereria bancrofti var. pacifica. Patients with elephantiasis seldom have circulating microfilariae in their blood. Hypereosinophily is frequent but rarely high. It is similar to the one patients with microfilaremia. There is a trend towards neutropenia during lymphangitic crisis that occur on an elephantiasis limb...
