Eosinofilia

The Medical Media Review - By Mark Yoffe MD - 15 July, 2013

"Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS) is a potentially life-threatening medical emergency. Patients present with fever, rash and internal organ dysfunction or failure. Organs affected include liver (hepatitis, fulminant hepatic failure), lungs (pneumonitis), kidneys (renal failure, nephritis), brain (encephalopathy and/or aseptic meningitis), and heart (myocarditis, heart failure). Endocrine dysfunction such as hyperthyroidism, diabetes mellitus, and SIADH are also sometimes seen. Symptoms usually begin within two to six weeks of starting an offending drug.
DRESS is distinguished from sepsis by the presence of eosinophilia and rash."
