Systemic diseases may be present in the underlying recurrent and disseminated thromboses. One of them is idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. It is a condition which is associated with the presence of eosinophilia without a secondary u nderlying cause a nd a lso with a n evidence of end-organ damage. Affected end organs are most frequently the heart, lungs, the central and peripheral nervous system, and the skin. Hypereosinophilic disorders are associated with the increased counts of eosinophils in the blood and tissues. Correct diagnosis is of utmost importance for effective management of eosinophilia. Herein, we present a 38-year-old male patient with idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome who died due to thrombotic complications.
