    Objective: We describe border-zone territory infarctions without evident hypotension or vascular stenoses in a case of hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES). We review the spectrum of neurological changes associated with HES and explore about its relationship with the observed infarction pattern. Methods: This is a case report. A PubMed literature search was conducted searching clinico-radiographic findings of neurological complications associated with HES. Results: A previously healthy 47 year old man presented with progressive encephalopathy, weight loss and general malaise over three weeks.
