Eosinophilia is observed in allergic and atopic diseases such as asthma, allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, atopic dermatitis, drug reactions, eczema, episodic angioedema and urticarial, in idiopathic eosinophilic syndrome, connective tissue diseases, vasculitis, granulomatous diseases, parasitic and nonparasitic infections, skin diseases and various pathologies such as hematological malignancies. The association between malignancy and eosinophilia has been identified especially in hematological and lymphocytic cancers. However, it is very rare in solid cancers. In bronchial carcinomas, regardless of the histological type, eosinophilia is very rarely observed. Here, we present a case with apparent eosinophilia induced by lung adenocarcinoma.
