Learn About Eosinophilic Asthma

What is the definition of Eosinophilic Asthma?
Eosinophilic asthma is a form of severe asthma that mainly occurs in adults. Asthma is a chronic condition that causes the airways of the lungs to spasm as they constrict, swell, and produce excess mucous. Eosinophilic asthma is characterized by a high level of eosinophils, which are a type of white blood cells that fight infection. While the cause is unknown, the high number of eosinophils may occur on their own or be caused by an allergic reaction, a drug reaction, or a parasitic disease. The eosinophils create inflammation in the airways that triggers asthma symptoms.
