To describe some of the most severe features of eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS) and identify potential prognostic indicators.
Systematic review of data from initial case reports and from followup supplemental death report forms forwarded to the national surveillance system administered by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
As of August 10, 1991 36 deaths related to EMS had been reported to CDC.
Among all patients fitting the surveillance case definition for EMS, we found that patients who died were older, had higher absolute leukocyte and eosinophil counts, and reported a greater frequency of cough or dyspnea, neuropathy, hepatomegaly, leukocytosis, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate.
