Maximal expiratory flow rates such as Peak Expiratory Flow Rate (PEFR), rates at 25%, 50% and 75% of forced vital capacity (VE 25%, VE 50% and VE 75%) were studied in twenty untreated tropical eosinophilia (TE) patients. All measurements were significantly lower in patients with TE compared to their mean predicted values. These data suggest that inflammation of airways is an important mechanism of pathophysiology of tropical eosinophilia.
