Loeffler's syndrome is an acute pneumonia with an unclear cause. One fourth of Loeffler's syndrome patients are idiopathic, although the most common etiologic causes include parasites. Asymptomatic form is usually a reversible, self-limited disease, which does not require a specific treatment regimen. We presented a 17-year-old young man with diagnosis of Loeffler syndrome.
