An eosinophil count in a blood test measures the number of one sub-type of WBC called eosinophils. The levels of eosinophils become active when triggered by certain allergic diseases, infections, and other medical conditions. A high number of eosinophils is called eosinophilia and can be seen during certain conditions like diet pills, interferons, certain antibiotics, psyllium (laxative), tranquilizers, nasal allergy or more serious forms of allergies (seasonal allergies), leukemia, eczema, auto-immune disease, ulcerative colitis, scarlet fever, lupus, Crohn’s disease, organ transplant rejection, due to certain drug reactions, chronic inflammations and a certain type of cancers like bone marrow or lymph node cancers. Symptoms of eosinophilia are rash, itching, diarrhea (in the case of parasitic infections), asthma, runny nose when associated with allergies (allergic rhinitis). Low eosinophil counts may be due to certain conditions such as alcohol abuse, Cushing’s disease/syndrome is suspected.   Other associated tests include flow cytometry, antibody blood test, bone marrow aspirate, bone marrow biopsy, cytogenic and molecular testing, etc.
