Abstract

The idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome is a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by persistent eosinophilia of undetected cause, and multiple organ system involvement. The systems affected include the central and peripheral nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal systems and the kidneys, skin, muscles and joints. Treatment is mainly by immunosuppressive drugs to prevent organ system complications. Prognosis is variable, depending mainly on heart involvement.
