Need more info: This could be one of many diagnoses and needs to be discussed with the doctors who have the results of the tests. Can be tuberculosis, as well as other infectious or non-infectious inflammatory conditions. The eosinophilia is compatible with TB, but also with other diseases. Good luck.
