Abstract

Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome is an uncommon leukoproliferative systemic disorder characterized by the sustained eosinophilia and target organ damage. We report the case of a 56-year-old man presenting with multiple cerebral embolism, Löffler endocarditis, and hypereosinophilia. This patient also had pleural, bone marrow, and skin involvement. The unique feature was multifocal embolisms in the brain.
