Eosinophilia is defined as the presence of more than 500 eosinophil/mL of blood and is common in the clinical condition such as parasite infestation, drug, allergy, hypereosinophilic syndrome, and malignant diseases. Determining the cause of eosinophilia may be one of the most frustrating endeavors in clinical medicine. Hepatic infiltration of eosinophils and microabscess formation are observed in many disorders. Gastric cancer and intestinal malignancies show frequent liver metastasis and blood eosinophilia. Several cases of an early gastric carcinoma (EGC) with metastasis of the liver have been reported. When multiple intrahepatic lesions of suspicious malignancy appear in radiologic study, clinicians must differentiate malignancy from benign diseases. A case is herein reported of a 56- year-old male patient with synchronously developed, multiple low density hepatic lesions with early gastric carcinoma. He was managed with systemic chemotherapy at another hospital, because he was diagnosed with distant metastasis of early gastric carcinoma. Upon operating these lesions were proved to be EGC combined with hypereosinophilic multiple liver abscesses. This case is herein reported with a review of relevant literatures.
