Open Journal of Nephrology (OJNeph) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojneph.2013.32017
Abstract:

Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (IHES) is a disorder characterized by increased eosinophil count (eosinophilia) along with organ dysfunction secondary to organ infiltration of eosinophils and release of inflammatory markers [1-4], with no obvious cause for eosinophilia. The onset of symptoms is insidious in most of the cases and eosinophilia is detected incidentally. However, in others, the initial manifestations are severe and life-threatening due to the rapid evolution of cardiac or neurologic complications [5]. Renal involvement is rarely reported [6] in IHES. Herein we reported a case of IHES with predominant renal involvement as nephrotic syndrome with focal necrotizing IgA nephropathy.

Hypereosinophilic syndrome

Abstract: A case report, the clinical features, and a histopathological report in one case of Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) is reported. This patient had exfoliative dermatitis, urticaria and angiodema. She had received treatment with steroids which showed improvement and recurence after stopping steroid therapy. Unique feature of this case was that skin eruptions were the main presentation. Skin eruptions may be the only manifestation of otherwise asymptomatic patient of HES.

Abstract: We report a rare case of hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) presenting with intractable gastric ulcers. A 71-year-old man was admitted with epigastric pain. Initial endoscopic findings revealed multiple, active gastric ulcers in the gastric antrum. He underwent Helicobacter pylori (H pylori) eradication therapy followed by proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy. However, follow-up endoscopy at 4, 6, 10 and 14 mo revealed persistent multiple gastric ulcers without significant improvement. The proportion of his eosinophil count increased to 43% (total count: 7903/mm3). Abdominal-pelvic and chest computed tomography scans showed multiple small nodules in the liver and both lungs. The endoscopic biopsy specimen taken from the gastric antrum revealed prominent eosinophilic infiltration, and the liver biopsy specimen also showed eosinophilic infiltration in the portal tract and sinusoid. A bone marrow biopsy disclosed eosinophilic hyperplasia as well as increased cellularity of 70%. The patient was finally diagnosed with HES involving the stomach, liver, lung, and bone marrow. When gastric ulcers do not improve despite H pylori eradication and prolonged PPI therapy, infiltrative gastric disorders such as HES should be considered.
COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY AND ULTRASONOGRAPHIC FINDINGS OF HEPATIC INVOLVEMENT RELATED TO EOSINOPHILIA MIMICKING LIVER METASTASES: REPORT OF 2 CASES

Marmara Medical Journal , 2010,
Abstract: The hypereosinophilic syndrome is a severe disease affecting multiple organ systems as the heart, skin, liver, spleen, urinary, gastrointestinal, nervous, and hematopoietic systems. The most important findings are eosinophilic infiltration and peripheral eosinophilic leukocytosis. Here, we report liver involvement and abdominal computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography (US) characteristics of the hypereosinophilic syndrome in two patients.
Hypereosinophilic syndrome: Cutaneous involvement as the sole manifestation
Sundaramurthi Vidya,Prabhavathy D,Somasundaram S,Wahab Afthab
Indian Journal of Dermatology , 2011,
Abstract: Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) encompasses a group of leukoproliferative disorders with variable involvement of the internal organs. More than half of all patients have cutaneous involvement. In a minority of the reported cases, skin involvement has been the only manifestation of HES . We report one such rare case of HES, with cutaneous involvement as the sole manifestation.

Abstract: we describe a case of idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome manifested by an axonal sensoriomotor polyneuropathy (asmp) and signals of myositis. a 20 years old woman began with progressive gait impairment with drops and presented with subacute lower limb edema associated with paresthesis and cramps. she showed hypotonia in the lower limbs, absence of knee and ankle jerks, steppage gait, and decreased sensation on both legs. examinations of stools were negative. blood examination showed 7700 leukocytes with 24% (1848/mm3 ) eosinophils. electrodiagnostic studies showed axonal lesion in sensory and motor nerves. muscle biopsy showed type 2 muscle fibers atrophy with discrete inflammatory cells, predominantly lymphocytic in perivascular and interstitial locations. she was treated with prednisone and all the symptoms subsided after two months.

Abstract: hypereosinophilic syndrome is characterized by persistent hypereosinophilia and signs or symptoms due to organ involvement, specially nervous system, heart and skin. it can be primary or secondary to allergies, parasites or cancer. toxocariasis is an uncommon parasitic disease in adults. there is a variant, called visceral larva migrans, that can involve different organs, and among those, the central nervous system. we report a 61 years old male, with a cerebrovascular disease. there were focalizing symptoms, the cat scan showed multiple ischemic lesions and a peripheral eosinophilia of 12152 cells/mm3 was present. anti toxocara igg antibody titers were 1/1000. the patient was treated with albendazole for 14 days. after a 2 years follow up the patients is in good conditions and, for the first time, his eosinophil count is within normal limits (rev méd chile 2001; 129: 780-5).
"HYPEREOSINOPHILIC SYNDROME: REPORT OF A CASE AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE "
H. Moayeri Z. Oloomi
Acta Medica Iranica , 2006,
Abstract: Idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome represents a heterogeneous group of leukoprolifrative disorders associated with prolonged eosinophilia of an undetectable cause with multi organ system dysfunction. It is a rare group disorder in children, most cases are reported in adult age group. We report a child with this syndrome who along with the usual features of the syndrome also had the presentation of cardiac and neurologic complications which did not respond to treatment.
