Exploring Best Practices for Diagnosis and Management of Hypereosinophilic Syndrome

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Hypereosinophilic syndromes (HESs) are a broad group of disorders that can lead to serious complications, including cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, and death. Due to their rarity, however, HESs are challenging to diagnose and treat. In this in-depth review, presented by Princess Ogbogu, MD, and developed in collaboration with Michael Wechsler, MD, MMSc, the wide-ranging presentations of HES will be reviewed, along with pathophysiology, classification, and acute and chronic management. Learnings from the presentation will be tied together with a case-based presentation of idiopathic HES, allowing learners to see how guideline recommendations and novel clinical trials can be applied in a real clinical setting.
