Sažetak

 

Pacijent star 62 godine, u dobroj kondiciji, javio se lekaru zbog povraćanja i proliva. Mesec dana nakon početka uzimanja granula pčelinjeg polena kod pacijenta su se razvili simptomi gastrointestinalnog trakta sa oko deset vodenih dijareja dnevno. U krvnoj slici nađena je eozinofilija od 1,638x109/lit. (21% od 7,8x109/lit. leukocita)  kao i povišeni enzimi jetre. Parazitološkim pregledom stolice nađeni su masa polenovih zrna različitih biljaka i veliki broj Šarko-Lajdenovih kristala. Zaključeno je da se pacijent senzibilisao na polen i savetovan mu je prekid samolečenja.

 

 

Ključne reči:

Polen; polenske granule; senzibilizacija; dijareja.

 

 

 

Abstract

 

A 62-year-old patient, in good condition, reported to the doctor for vomiting and diarrhea. A month after the beginning of oral bee pollen intake, he developed symptoms of the gastrointestinal tract, with approximately ten water diarrheas per day. In complete blood count and liver function tests, eosinophilia with 1,638x109/l (21% of 7,8x109/l WBC) and elevated liver enzymes were found. Parasitological examination of the stool revealed the mass of pollen grains of various plants with a large number of Charcot-Leyden crystals. It was concluded that the patient was sensitive to pollen and was advised to stop the self-medication.

 

 

Key words:
