   Also found in: Dictionary/thesaurus, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia 0.01 sec.
eosinophilia /eo·sin·o·phil·ia/ (e″o-sin″o-fil´e-ah) abnormally increased eosinophils in the blood.
e·o·sin·o·phil·i·a (ē′ə-sĭn′ə-fĭl′ē-ə)
n.
An increase in the number of eosinophils in the blood. Also called eosinophilic leukocytosis.

Eosinophilia
An abnormal increase in the number of a specific type of white blood cell. Eosinophilia is a characteristic of all types of roundworm infections.

eosinophilia
[ē′əsin′ōfil′yə]
an increase in the number of eosinophils in the blood, accompanying inflammatory conditions. Substantial increases are considered a reflection of an allergic response.

eosinophilia [e″o-sin″o-fil´e-ah]
1. the formation and accumulation of an abnormally large number of eosinophils in the blood; see also hypereosinophilia. Called also eosinophilic leukocytosis.
2. the condition of being readily stained with eosin. adj., adj eosinophil´ic.
tropical eosinophilia (tropical pulmonary eosinophilia) a subacute or chronic form of occult filariasis, usually involving Brugia malayi or Wuchereria bancrofti , occurring in the tropics. It is characterized by episodic nocturnal wheezing and coughing, strikingly elevated eosinophilia, and diffuse reticulonodular infiltrations of the lung. Sometimes the lymph nodes and spleen are greatly enlarged.

eosinophilia (ē´əsin´əfil´ēə),
n an absolute or relative increase in the normal number of eosinophils in the circulating blood. Various limits are given (e.g., absolute eosinophilia if the total number exceeds 500 mm3) and relative if greater than 3% but total less than 500 mm3. It may be associated with skin diseases, infestations, hay fever, asthma, angioneurotic edema, adrenocortical insufficiency, and Hodgkin disease.

eosinophilia
1. the formation and accumulation of an abnormally large number of eosinophils in the blood.
2. the condition of being readily stained with eosin.

eosinophilia
Eosinophilic leukocytosis Hematology An absolute eosinophil count of > 500/mm3

e·o·sin·o·phil·ic leu·ko·cy·to·sis
a form of relative leukocytosis in which the greatest proportionate increase is in the eosinophils.
Synonym(s): eosinophilia

e·o·sin·o·phil·ic leu·ko·cy·to·sis (ē'ō-sin-ō-fil'ik lū'kō-sī-tō'sis)
A form of relative leukocytosis in which the greatest proportionate increase is in the eosinophils.
Synonym(s): eosinophilia.

The idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome was first defined by Chusid et al in 1975 as (1) persistent eosinophilia of 1.
Allergic status was positive if serum IgE was greater than 430 mcg/L, blood eosinophilia was greater than 0.
Initial work-up depicted eosinophilia (43%), and a computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed left pleural effusion.
