Cytogenetic analysis and molecular genetic studies help for diagnosis of IHES and differentiation between IHES and other hematologic disorders with eosinophilia. We want to present a case of IHES with chromosomal mosaicism for inversion of chromosome 3(p25, p26), who achieved complete remission after treatment with Imatinib and short course of prednisolone.
