Hiruthick Seenivasan, Ganthimathy Sekhar

Abstract


Eosinophilia is a commonly observed phenomenon in the hemogram of patients in Haematology laboratories. It is seen
across all age groups and both sexes and the causes and associated disorders vary greatly from fairly benign conditions to
more ominous lesions. Eosinophila is diagnosed when the absolute eosinophil count is above 500 cell per cubic millimeter and is further classified
into mild, moderate and severe based on the degree of elevation of counts. The present study was done on 100 cases of eosinophilia across all age
groups who were found to have eosinophilia in their hemograms. It was found that there was a slight preponderance of males and eosinophila was
seen commonly from 11 to 50 years. The commonest disorder associated was chronic kidney disease and the least common was bleeding
disorders. Severe eosinophilia was rare in this study.
