A 44-year-old Indian housewife presented with prolonged cough, intermittent fever, loss of weight and shortness of breath on exertion. Physical examination revealed a thin lady with fine crackles on both lungs. Marked eosinophilia and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate were noted on peripheral blood. Chest radiograph showed characteristic bilateral infiltrates affecting the periphery of both lungs. Treatment with corticosteroid resulted in dramatic improvement in symptoms, signs and radiographic changes within a few days.
