Background: To investigate the behaviour of the inflammatory marker neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in the presence of peripheral blood eosinophilia (PBE) in paediatric asthma patients with lower respiratory tract (LRT) infections.

Methods: This retrospective study enrolled consecutive patients aged ≥5 years who were diagnosed with asthma and whose haemogram values were available. The patients were further subdivided based on the presence or absence of LRT infections and allergies. NLR and C-reactive protein (CRP) were evaluated in relation to the presence or absence of PBE (≥4% eosinophils).

Results: A total of 991 patients were enrolled in the study. Patients with LRT infections had significantly higher leucocyte and neutrophil counts, a greater NLR and a higher level of CRP compared with patients without LRT infections. Overall, patients with PBE had significantly lower NLRs and CRP regardless of the presence or absence of an LRT infection. The PBE percentage showed moderate inverse correlations with NLR ( r = -0.34) and CRP ( r = -0.20).

Conclusion: The presence of PBE was significantly associated with lower NLR and CRP regardless of the presence or absence of an infectious condition.

Unusual presentation of hydatid cyst: diagnosis with bronchoscopy.

J Infect Dev Ctries 2010 Jun 3;4(5):352-4. Epub 2010 Jun 3.

Department of Pediatric Pulmonology, Sureyyapasa Chest Diseases and Thoracic Surgery Training and Investigation Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Hydatid disease is one of the major health problems in countries where hydatidosis is endemic. Atypical radiological findings may lead to misdiagnosis or delay in diagnosis in these patients. A 13-year-old boy was presented who admitted to the hospital with a history of cough and hemoptysis for six months. He had a non-resolving pneumonia. Bronchoscopy showed endobronchial lesion and the diagnosis of hydatid disease was confirmed by pathological examination.
