Eosinophils have bactericidal properties through phagocytosis, respiratory burst, and cytotoxic protein mobilization if bacterial infection occurs. Even though neutrophils have been reported as predominant phagocytic cells in tuberculosis patients, eosinophils also play important role in it. To date, there have been some researches studied about eosinophil and lung tuberculosis. But, data about the association between eosinophil and eosinophilic amorphous structure in tuberculous lymphadenitis patients hasnt been studied so far.
