1 doctor agrees
In brief: Typically prednisone
Prednisone or other corticosteroids are very effective at controlling eosinophil levels and are usually the first line of treatment.
Do to the long-term side effects, other medications like Hydroxyurea and interferon-alpha can be used to lower the doses of steroids that are required. If the syndrome is related to a leukemia or a specific dna mutation, treatment with chemotherapy may be effective.
