Eosinophilic pleural effusions accounts for 5-16% of all the cases of pleural effusion. Here the authors present a case of 21 years old male patient, with right-sided chest pain in whom peripheral blood eosinophilia along with eosinophilic pleural effusion were found after a series of relevant investigations and two causative factors were found for same i.e., Visceral Larva Migrans (VLM) and tubercular pleural effusion. Both of them individually can cause hypereosinophilia, but presence of them together makes this case rare and interesting.
