    Crescentic glomerulonephritis with immune complex deposition and acute eosinophilic interstitial nephritis developed in a patient with the hypereosinophilic syndrome. Acute renal failure ensued but was rapidly reversed by high-dose oral prednisone. Confounding factors and unusual findings are described with a review of recent literature. This mode of presentation has not previously been reported.
