We report the case of a 62 year-old man with a history of a stomach cancer who presented a generalized edema with skin sclerosis settling over a month. No other examination abnormalities were found. Biological tests revealed hypereosinophilia with a high level of lactate dehydrogenase. Digestive endoscopy found no new lesions. The thoraco-abdomino-pelvic scan revealed multiple lymphadenopathies.
