Eosinophilic lung disease is characterised by eosinophilic infiltration of lung tissue besides peripherical blood and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid eosinophilia. A 48 year-old male who attended our clinics with cough and sputum lasting for 2-3 months, has been evaluated for micronodular interstitial infiltration bilaterally in all lung areas. Eosinophilia was detected in hemogram but BAL fluid was not diagnostic. Transbronchial lung parenchymal biopsy was compliant with chronic eosinophilic pneumonia. No special cause has been found after evaluation and the case was accepted to be idiopathic. Because of unfamiliar clinical, radiological and pathological findings, we decided to present this case.
