INTRODUCTION: Chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP) is an idiopathic chronic eosinophilic inflammation of the lungs. The clinical symptoms are generally vague presenting after 1-4 months of symptoms of productive cough, fever, dyspnea, fatigue, weight loss. Hypoxemia is generally mild-moderate and 80-90% of patients will have peripheral eosinophilia. Diagnosis can be further confirmed by bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) with eosinophils >25%. Given the vague symptoms, the diagnosis can be initially missed in patients with multiple medical comorbidities.
