Follow-up

Prognosis

See the list below:

  • Patient prognosis depends on the associated condition. Many helminthic infections develop into chronic diseases that cause morbidity but not mortality. Similarly, many allergic reactions and conditions associated with eosinophilia usually do not cause mortality.
  • The prognosis of primary eosinophilias is determined by their degree of organ involvement at diagnosis, the timeliness of treatment, responsiveness to treatment, and underlying cytogenetic and molecular pathophysiology.
