Abstract

Accurate diagnosis of eosinophilic lung diseases is essential to optimizing patient outcomes, but remains challenging. Signs and symptoms frequently overlap among the disorders, and because these disorders are infrequent, expertise is difficult to acquire. Still, these disorders are not rare, and most clinicians periodically encounter patients with one or more of the eosinophilic lung diseases and need to understand how to recognize, diagnose, and manage these diseases. This review focuses on the clinical features, general diagnostic workup, and management of the eosinophilic lung diseases.
