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 eosinophilic pneumonia, and has symptoms including coughing An important gene associated with Loeffler Syndrome is IL33 (Interleukin 33), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and PEDF Induced Signaling. Related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and digestive/alimentary
