I looks like a case od secondary eosinophilia considering the age of presentation Causes could be 1.Allergic Rhinitis or bronchitis 2.Parasitic infestations 3.Connective tissue disorders 4.Systemic fungal infections 5Myeloproliferative disorders or AML Get him evaluated with 1 ENT examination for DNS , sinusitis or allergic rhinitis with hypertrophied turbinates 2.An X - ray chest 3.Stool examination for ova and cysts 4.Blood examination for CBC and LFT 5.ULTRASONOGRAPHY abdomen to rule out any organ involvement Treatment- Tab deflazacort 6 mg O.D can be started for 2 weeks Continue Fexofenadine + montelukast Tab Albendazole 400 mg O.D for 3 days If Eosinophilia does not become normal after a repeat test after 20 days then following drugs are the options only if organ involvement is there . Hydroxyurea Chlorambucil Vincristine Cytarabine 2-Chlorodeoxyadenosine (2-CdA) Etoposide Cyclosporine  This case is a mild case of eosinophilia and will resolve with these simple measures Grades,of Eosinophilia are, Mild: 500 - 1500 cells/mL Moderate: 1500 - 5000 cells/mL Severe: > 5000 cells/mL
