Abstract

Eosinophilic myositis is a condition in which the affected muscles become infiltrated with eosinophiles. The exact etiology of this condition is not known, and while it has often been associated with parasitisms or allergic reactions, such a relationship has not been proven conclusively. The affected muscles constitute a meat inspection problem as they must be trimmed from the carcass, but the remaining tissues are edible.
