Hypereosinophilic syndrome care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

HES can affect many parts of your body. Mayo Clinic's HES care team includes specialists in allergic diseases, skin diseases (dermatology), digestive disorders (gastroenterology), brain and nervous system disorders (neurology), metabolism disorders (endocrinology), blood disorders (hematology) and laboratory medicine (pathology).

Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — care is discussed among the team, appointments are scheduled in coordination, and highly specialized HES experts are all working together to determine what's best for you.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

HES is a diverse and complex syndrome. Extensive testing is often needed to refine diagnosis and assess potential damage to organs.

At Mayo Clinic, a detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures lets you make the most of your time at the clinic. Mayo Clinic technicians run all tests and labs themselves, which means tests taken in the morning can often be reviewed the same afternoon. Mayo's collaborative approach means two or three days often yields the same diagnosis and care insights that could take weeks in less-coordinated institutions.

Nationally recognized expertise

Mayo Clinic's mission is to research and share medical advancements and treatments. The Allergic Diseases Research Laboratory has been actively studying eosinophil biology for more than 50 years, aiming to understand the role of eosinophils in diseases such as hypereosinophilic syndrome. The laboratory has had a National Institutes of Health grant in allergic diseases since the 1980s and provides training for doctors from many medical disciplines, with the goals of finding new treatments and eventually curing diseases such as HES.
