    There are few cases describing the association of eosinophilia with hypercalcemia, and drug-induced eosinophilia with hypercalcemia has not been reported. A 74-year-old man had been diagnosed with asthma 4 months earlier. He was admitted due to eosinophilia with hypercalcemia. Chest computed tomography showed a nodule in the left lung and mediastinal lymphadenopathy. By obtaining a detailed medical history, clopidogrel was suspected as the prime cause of eosinophilia. After the discontinuation of clopidogrel, the eosinophilia with hypercalcemia, lung nodule and mediastinal lymphadenopathy improved. Clopidogrel-induced eosinophilia can potentially cause hypercalcemia. Obtaining a detailed clinical history is important in diagnosing the cause of eosinophilia.
