Eosinophiliaabnormal increase of eosinophils in the blood, tissues or organs.
Eosinophilia-Myalgia Syndromea complex systemic syndrome with inflammatory and autoimmune components that affect the skin, fascia, muscle, nerve, blood vessels, lung, and heart. diagnostic features generally include eosinophilia, myalgia severe enough to limit usual activities of daily living, and the absence of coexisting infectious, autoimmune or other conditions that may induce eosinophilia. biopsy of affected tissue reveals a microangiopathy associated with diffuse inflammation involving connective tissue. (from spitzer et al., j rheumatol suppl 1996 oct;46:73-9; blackburn wd, semin arthritis rheum 1997 jun;26(6):788-93)
Pulmonary Eosinophiliaa condition characterized by infiltration of the lung with eosinophils due to inflammation or other disease processes. major eosinophilic lung diseases are the eosinophilic pneumonias caused by infections, allergens, or toxic agents.
Eosinophilsgranular leukocytes with a nucleus that usually has two lobes connected by a slender thread of chromatin, and cytoplasm containing coarse, round granules that are uniform in size and stainable by eosin.

- - Acidocytosis - D72.10
D7210 replaces the following previously assigned ICD-10-CM code(s):
Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell. They help fight off infections and play a role in your body's immune response. They can also build up and cause inflammation.
Normally your blood doesn't have a large number of eosinophils. Your body may produce more of them in response to:
- Allergic disorders
- Skin conditions
- Parasitic and fungal infections
- Autoimmune diseases
- Some cancers
- Bone marrow disorders
In some conditions, the eosinophils can move outside the bloodstream and build up in organs and tissues. This can happen in many different parts of the body, including the esophagus, heart, lungs, blood, and intestines. Treatment of eosinophilic disorders can vary, depending on the cause and which part of the body is affected. Steroids are often part of the treatment.

 Not chronic - A diagnosis code that does not fit the criteria for chronic condition (duration, ongoing medical treatment, and limitations) is considered not chronic. Some codes designated as not chronic are acute conditions. Other diagnosis codes that indicate a possible chronic condition, but for which the duration of the illness is not specified in the code description (i.e., we do not know the condition has lasted 12 months or longer) also are considered not chronic.
