Abstract

A case of L-tryptophan associated eosinophilia, myalgia, eosinophilic fasciitis, peripheral sensorimotor neuropathy, and multiple white matter lesions on MRI scan is reported. The various effects of eosinophilia on the nervous system are reviewed. The persistence of the neurological complications despite resolution of eosinophilia and steroid therapy is emphasized.
