An association between chronic eosinophilic and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma previously has not been reported in adults. We describe a woman with chronic eosinophilic pneumonia documented by chest roentgenogram, elevated total eosinophil count, and transbronchial biopsy demonstrating eosinophilic pneumonitis. The illness was controlled with corticosteroids for ten months after which time lymphadenopathy appeared and diffuse, histiocytic lymphoma was diagnosed.
