Eosinophilia can be mild, moderate, or severe depending upon the immunity and other factors in each individual. Drug-induced Eosinophilic Lung Disease is the most common form of cause of its occurrence. The severity of the infection is quite high. Eosinophilic Lung Disease needs to be differentiated from other lung-related disorders such as- asthma, pneumonia, certain allergies, tuberculosis, etc. as the symptoms can be somewhat similar but the line of treatment in each disorder is different.
