Click 28 y old male with pulmonary schistosomiasis. Chest CT (mediastinal window) of the upper lungs showing blurred ground glass nodules scattered over both lungs. Middle lungs showing ground glass nodules and subpleural consolidation of the left superior lower lobe, both consistent with acute eosinophilic infiltration in the context of acute pulmonary schistosomiasis. (Siemens Sensation 16. 120 kV, 100 mAs, 16x1.5 mm collimation, slice thickness 3 mm).

Click 56 y old male with angiostrongyloidosis. Chest CT (mediastinal window) of another patient with parasitic disease. Upper lungs showing ground glass nodules in peripheral distribution represeting eosinophilic accumulation as an unspecific feature in parasitic lung involvement in the context of Loeffler syndrome (Siemens Sensation 16. 120 kV, 120 mAs, 16x1.5 mm collimation, slice thickness 3 mm).
