[Loa loa filariasis: cause of severe eosinophilia].

Two cases of very high hypereosinophilia (28,160 and 11,232/mm3) observed in congolese patients are presented. Although microfilaraemia was not detectable, loiasis was diagnosed, given the clinical manifestations, epidemiological data, history of sub-conjunctival migration of the adult worm (in one case), spectacular recovery (clinical and biological) after treatment with diethylcarbamazine. This "allergic form" of filariasis is often considered unusual in indigenous subjects.
