This self-assessment module (SAM) features a challenging Immunology case. You will be presented with information including an introduction, case presentation, laboratory findings, discussions, and a summary. The case includes a series of thought-provoking questions related to the case. These thought-provoking questions are designed as learning opportunities to check your knowledge and therefore are not scored.

After you complete the case, you will be presented with a 5-question post-test assessment. The AMA requires that you pass the post-test in an enduring program to claim credit.

As a result of participating in this SAM eligible activity, you will be able to:

  1. Describe the genetic abnormalities of primary (clonal) eosinophilia.
  2. Explain the various etiologies of secondary (reactive) eosinophilia.
  3. Use the WHO criteria for diagnosis of hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES).
  4. Evaluate appropriate treatment modalities for each type of eosinophilia.
  5. Recognize clinical manifestations of hypereosinophilia.
