Hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES) represents a heterogeneous group of diseases, some of which are being clarified by recent advances in molecular genetics. It is very rare in children. Uncertainties in classification and lack of prospective studies make therapeutic decisions difficult. The authors report two cases of HES in which steroid therapy was effective.
