Abstract

Three radiologically and bacteriologically confirmed pulmonary tuberculosis patients had eosinophilic pneumonia, as demonstrated by BAL. In two patients, pulmonary eosinophilia was present only at the site of the lesion and the third had eosinophilia in both peripheral blood and lung. There was complete elimination of the eosinophilic inflammatory process in two patients who had successfully completed antituberculosis treatment.
