Hypereosinophilic syndrome is a rare condition characterized by idiopathic eosinophilia with organ system involvement. Cardiac involvement portends a less favorable prognosis as it can be complicated by development of heart failure, valvular dysfunction, and restrictive cardiomyopathy. We present a rare case of hypereosinophilic syndrome with FIP1L1/PDGFRA fusion in a 50-year-old male associated with thrombus in left and right ventricle. (Echocardiography 2010;27:E57-E59)
