in the review modern data on drug-induced pulmonary eosinophilia - heterogeneous group of the diseases
proceeding separately (syndrome lÖffler, acute and chronic eosinophilic pneumonias), or as the component
part of a DRESS-syndrome (drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms) is introduced. The list of the
medical products most often causing development of pulmonary eosinophilia is presented. clinical features of
simple pulmonary eosinophilia, acute and chronic eosinophilia pneumonias, a DRESS-syndrome are described.
Diagnostic criteria and principles of therapy of pulmonary eosinophilia depending on a clinical variant are
