Hypersensitivity pneumonitis in a teenager

examination was negative for tuberculosis. BAL from the medium lobe bronchus recovered 100 ml from 120 ml instilated and showed a significant hypercellularity: 57.4 × 10 6 cells (normally, for non-smokers, less than 13 × 10 6 cells). The differential cytology identified a lymphocytic alveolitis: macrophages 15.0% (normally >84%), lymphocytes 74.2% (normally <13%), granulocytes 10.4% (normally <3%), neutrophils 9.8% (normally <3%), eosinophils 0.6% (normally <0.5%) and mastocytes 0.4% (normally <0.5%). It should be mentioned that the increased neutrophils percent is
