However, unlike, acute eosinophilic pneumonia (aep), in the chronic form (cep), recurrences are frequent fortunately, the second, third or more frequent relapse will respond to treatment prolonged treatment does not predict relapses, so each occurrence is treated individually.

Acute eosinophilic pneumonia (aep) is an uncommon acute respiratory illness of varying severity that includes presentation as acute respiratory distress syndrome with fatal outcome aep may be idiopathic, but identifiable causes include smoking and other inhalational exposures, medications, and. Aep as the name implies, acute eosinophilic pneumonia (aep) is characterized by a rapidly progressive infiltration of eosinophils into the lungs, leading to respiratory failure, distinguishing it from the more indolent and less severe presentation of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia.
Acute eosinophilic pneumonia is a severe syndrome characterized by fever, lung infiltrates, blood eosinophilia and respiratory failure we describe a case of acute eosinophilic pneumonia. Acute eosinophilic pneumonia typically follows a rapid course if no underlying cause is found, a diagnosis of aep or cep is made based upon the following criteria.

Acute eosinophilic pneumonia (aep) is a severe, rapidly progressive lung disease that, if not recognized or treated, can result in fatal respiratory failure the precise pathogenesis and etiology of aep is still unknown, but there is some correlation between aep and preceding exposure to inhalational agents, such as cigarette smoke.
A rare and truly challenging disorder, acute eosinophilic pneumonia (aep) is characterized by the accum ulation of eosinophils in the lungs (pulmonary eosinophilia) part of the immune system, eosinophils are a type of white blood cell typically produced in response to allergens, inflammation or infection. Eosinophilic lung disease acute eosinophilic pneumonia (aep) is a febrile illness leading to progressive, the aep caused by drugs or toxins (drug-induced aep). Acute eosinophilic pneumonia aep is characterised by the acute onset of fever, hypoxaemia and severe respiratory distress, in the absence of infection [ 7 ] aep may be idiopathic or may result from toxic inhalation, drug reaction and cigarette smoking [ 1 , 8 .
