LÃ¶ffler's syndrome was initially described as a disorder characterised by transient pulmonary infiltrates accompanied by peripheral blood eosinophilia in asymptomatic or mildly ill patients. Abnormal chest radiographic findings are said to occur in 95% of patients but there are no descriptions of CT findings. There are many causes of this syndrome, but in developing countries the most common presentation remains secondary to the migratory larvae of common intestinal helminths. We present the clinical and radiological features of a boy with clearly defined LÃ¶ffler's syndrome due to larval migration.
