Raynaud’s phe­nom­e­non and dig­i­tal necro­sis of the fin­gers are rare com­pli­ca­tions of hyper­eo­sin­o­phil­ia. We ­report a case of a smok­ing male who devel­oped ­Raynaud’s phe­nom­e­non and dig­i­tal necro­sis of the fin­gers asso­ciat­ed with idiopath­ic hyper­eo­sin­o­phil­ia with angio­graph­i­cal­ly doc­u­ment­ed occlu­sion of small and medi­um arter­ies of the extrem­ities. The eosin­o­phils may play a throm­bot­ic role in vas­cu­lar pathol­o­gy and eosin­o­phil blood count ­should be ­checked when inves­ti­gat­ing ­patients with dig­i­tal gan­grene.
