REIS, RICARDO COELHO et al. Job's syndrome or hyperimmunoglobulinemia E. J. Pneumologia [online]. 2001, vol.27, n.2, pp. 115-118. ISSN 0102-3586. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-35862001000200009.
Job's syndrome, or hyperimmunoglobulinemia E, is a rare immunodeficiency condition with no established etiology, characterized by recurrent lower and upper respiratory tract and skin infections associated with high levels of immunoglobulin E, eosinophilia, and a characteristic facial alteration. The authors report on a 22-year-old man who carried this disease complicated by pleural empyema and lung cysts, showing a good evolution.
