[Chronic course of eosinophilic pneumonia in infection with ascaris lumbricoides].

Abstract

A case of ascariasis-associated Loeffler's pneumonia is reported, which presented like Carrington's chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP). It is assumed, that under unfavourable conditions (children, old or disabled patients with high worm load) Loeffler's pneumonia takes a serious course, which can be confounded with CEP.
