Better late than never!! Our appointment with Cincinnati's Center for EosinophilicDiorders is August 11, 2008. At this time, that is all of the information we have. Two months somehow turned into four, and for some reason I was surprised!

is the least common of the white blood cells. They make up 2-4% of the white blood count. Children with eosinophilic disease have increased numbers of eosinophils in their blood, GI tract, and/or organs. Produced in the bone marrow, eosinophils then migrate to tissues throughout the body. When a foreign substance (an allergen or parasite, for example) enters the body, lymphocytes and neutrophils (other types of white blood cells) release certain substances to attract eosinophils which release toxic substances killing the invader.
