Löfgren's syndrome and Heerfordt-Waldenström syndrome are two distinct classic presentations of sarcoidosis in which the clinicoradiographic findings alone are sufficient to make a diagnosis without the need for tissue biopsy (Baughman et al., 2011b) Löffler's syndrome is a disease in which eosinophils accumulate in the lung in response to a parasitic infection. The parasite can be Strongyloides stercoralis, Dirofilaria immitis or Ascaris which can enter the body through contact with the soil
Description Löffler (Loeffler) syndrome is a rare, transient, self-limiting, and benign pulmonary eosinophilia lasting less than one month (usually 6-12 days). The syndrome is characterised by pulmonary infiltrates on X-ray, elevated blood eosinophils and an acute onset of potential symptoms of mainly cough, dyspnoea and wheeze Overview Sarcoidosis is a disease characterized by the growth of tiny collections of inflammatory cells (granulomas) in any part of your body — most commonly the lungs and lymph nodes. But it can also affect the eyes, skin, heart and other organs Löffler syndrome is a form of eosinophilic pulmonary disease characterized by absent or mild respiratory symptoms (most often dry cough), fleeting migratory pulmonary opacities, and peripheral blood eosinophilia.

Acute eosinophilic pneumonia is a severe condition characterized by the rapid accumulation of eosinophils in the lungs, while chronic eosinophilic pneumonia tends to have a gradual onset, and is slowly progressive in. sarcoidosis, several authors have illustrated cases that have findings similar to the cases described in this report.'-10 Infiltrates localized to the peripheral aspect of the lung have most frequently been described in eosinophilic pneumonia, particularly the acute Loeffler's syndrome and a more chronic form of the disease. Löffler syndrome (a subcategory of hypereosinophilic syndrome with primary cardiac involvement), which occurs in the tropics, begins as an acute arteritis with eosinophilia, followed by thrombus formation on the endocardium, chordae, and atrioventricular (AV) valves, progressing to fibrosis

Purpose of review: The purpose of this article is to provide understanding of renal sarcoidosis, the different types of renal sarcoidosis, disease burden of renal involvement, and treatment options. Recent findings: The frequency of renal involvement seems to be underestimated, but renal sarcoidosis represents a relevant group of organ manifestations and significantly adds to the patient's. Sarcoidosis: there is no diagnostic test for sarcoidosis though a mild peripheral blood eosinophilia, raised serum angiotensin converting enzyme level and a tissue biopsy demonstrating the presence of non-caseating granulomas in affected organs suggests the diagnosis. Neoplastic disorders with secondary non-clonal eosinophili Overview. Loeffler syndrome must be differentiated from other diseases that cause pulmonary eosinophilia, such as Churg-Strauss, drug and toxin-induced eosinophilic lung diseases, other helminthic and fungal infection related eosinophilic lung diseases, and nonhelminthic infections such as Coccidioidomycosis, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis Loeffler's syndrome: A self-limiting non-infectious inflammation in the lungs accompanied by increased eosinophils in tissue and peripheral blood. Aetiology Unknown, or various drugs, parasitic infestation (especially ascariasis in children), nickel exposure, recent blood transfusion, or lymphangiography. Clinical findings Chest pain, dry.
INTRODUCTION. Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease of unknown cause characterized by the formation of granulomatous lesions in various organs, particularly the lower respiratory tract. 35 Autopsy findings in sarcoidosis patients reveal up to 13% of interstitial granulomatous lesions in the renal parenchyma. 7,23 Sarcoidosis renal manifestations also include abnormal calcium metabolism. We hypothesized that sarcoidosis, or one of the disease subsets, could be associated with single nucleotide polymorphisms of C-C chemokine receptor 2 (CCR2) gene. Eight single-nucleotide polymorphisms in CCR2 were studied in a total of 304 Dutch individuals (90 non-Löfgren sarcoidosis, 47 Löfgren's syndrome, 167 control subjects) A type of sarcoidosis characterized by extensive involvement of hilar lymph nodes, erythema nodosum, and joint pains, esp. around the ankles.

Furthermore, other common causes of restrictive cardiomyopathy often result in diffuse irregular hyperenhancement in non-coronary distributions (i.e. cardiac amyloidosis and sarcoidosis). Another case of restrictive cardiomyopathy, siderotic cardiomyopathy, can easily be differentiated from Loeffler's endocarditis based on typical significant. Loeffler Endocarditis (Hypereosinophilic Syndrome).— Another nonischemic entity that produces uniform subendocardial enhancement is Loeffler endocarditis, or hypereosinophilic syndrome. In this rare entity, eosinophil-mediated damage of the subendocardium occurs, resulting in necrosis, thrombosis, and subsequent late-stage fibrosis of the. Since the first description of eosinophilic endomyocardial fibrosis by Loeffler in 1934, 1 the definition and classification of hypereosinophilic syndromes (HESs) have evolved considerably. In 1975, Chusid et al 2 described 14 cases of idiopathic HES defined by the presence of an AEC ≥1500/μL for 6 months (or death before that time), the absence of a known secondary cause, and. The association between pulmonary infiltrates and eosinophilia was first identified by Loeffler in 1932. It is now recognized that the eosinophilic pneumonias are a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by varying degrees of pulmonary parenchymal and/or blood eosinophilia. 1 The precise role that eosinophils play in the pathogenesis of the different eosinophilic pneumonias is not clear

Sarcoidosis was first described in 1877 as a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology. It is characterized pathologically by the presence of noncaseating granulomas in involved organs, most commonly involving the lungs and intrathoracic lymph nodes .It usually affects young adults (80% of cases occur between adults age 20 and 50 years), and initially usually present. Inflammatory activation occurs in nearly all forms of myocardial injury. In contrast, inflammatory cardiomyopathies refer to a diverse group of disorders in which inflammation of the heart (or myocarditis) is the proximate cause of myocardial dysfunction, causing injury that can range from a fully recoverable syndrome to one that leads to chronic remodeling and dilated cardiomyopathy
