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.
