Chronic Eosinophilic Pneumonia in an 11-Year-Old Boy
Idiopathic chronic eosinophilic pneumonia is a rare and serious disease mostly encountered in female asthmatic patients in their fifth decade of life and rarely in children. Herein, we describe an 11-year-old boy presenting with clubbing of fingers and post-exertional cough without asthma and peripheral eosinophilia. He had had a restrictive pattern in his pulmonary function test that showed a dramatic response to corticosteroid therapy.
