Abstract

Significant eosinophilia and even eosinophilic tissue infiltration has been associated with a variety of clinical disorders including allergic and immunodeficiency states, drug reaction, infection, parasitic infestation and malignancy. Eosinophilia without an underlying aetiology and with multi-organ dysfunction has been designated idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome. We report a case of endomyocardial fibrosis with MRI findings.
