We report here a case of hypereosinophilic syndrome in a young male who presented with recurrent haemoptysis shortness of breath, weight loss, low grade fever and cough. Since tuberculosis is very common in India and presentation is nearly same, patient was misdiagnosed and treated as tuberculosis twice
