Summaries for Loeffler Syndrome

Disease Ontology : 12 An eosinophilic pneumonia described as a form of pulmonary eosinophilia characterized as a mild pneumonitis marked by transitory pulmonary infiltration and eosinophilia and usually considered to be an allergic reaction. It can occur in response to a parasitic infection.

MalaCards based summary : Loeffler Syndrome, also known as simple pulmonary eosinophilia, is related to ascaris lumbricoides infection and pulmonary eosinophilia, and has symptoms including coughing An important gene associated with Loeffler Syndrome is FIP1L1 (Factor Interacting With PAPOLA And CPSF1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Cytokine Signaling in Immune system. Affiliated tissues include lung, skin and t cells, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and immune system
