BACKGROUND: Aetiology of heart failure (HF) often remains obscure. We therefore evaluated the usefulness of a combined diagnostic approach including cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) and endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) to assess the cause of unexplained cardiomyopathy underlying HF. METHODS AND RESULTS: We retrospectively investigated 100 consecutive patients (36% women, mean age 53.6 ± 18.8 years) presenting with unexplained cardiomyopathy (HF with reduced ejection fraction or left ventricular hypertrophy; excluding ischaemic and valvular heart disease; left ventricular ejection fraction 31...

A 65-year-old lady and a 69-year-old gentleman, both with a background history of adult-onset asthma, presented with clinical features of heart failure (HF). High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T and eosinophils were significantly raised, along with poor left ventricular (LV) systolic function on cardiac imaging. Endocardial and skin biopsy (in cases 1 and 2, respectively) showed eosinophilic infiltration. This in combination with the clinical features confirmed the diagnosis of eosinophilic myocarditis (EM) secondary to eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis in case 1...

We present the case of a patient with acute necrotizing eosinophilic myocarditis (ANEM) who rapidly recovered after receiving high-dose corticosteroid therapy. A previously healthy 29-year-old woman presented to our hospital with abdominal pain, nausea, and fever that had lasted for two days. Her clinical condition progressively declined and she ultimately presented with cardiogenic shock due to fulminant heart failure and atrioventricular dissociation due to sinus bradycardia, which required inotropic and ventilatory support...

We report a case of a 78-year-old woman with neutrophilia without eosinophilia who was pathologically diagnosed with eosinophilic myocarditis by myocardial biopsy. The biopsy specimen showed infiltrating granulocytes with hypersegmentation, mimicking neutrophils; however, they were confirmed to be eosinophils by Giemsa staining.

Introduction. Eosinophilic myocarditis is an infiltrative disease that affects the myocardium leading to various presentations. It can be precipitated by medications, helminthiasis, or hypereosinophilic syndrome. Case. We present the case of a young, male patient who presented with palpitations and dyspnea and was found to have heart failure with reduced ejection fracture of 12%. His past medical history was significant for recent lung problem treated with steroids. Based on his history and laboratory findings, he was started on intravenous steroids for treatment of eosinophilic myocarditis...

BACKGROUND: Eosinophilic myocarditis is one of the fatal complications of idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndromes. Given the rarity of this form of myocarditis, it is often under-recognized. We describe a young girl who presented with features of heart failure. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of eosinophilic myocarditis in a young Sri Lankan female. CASE PRESENTATION: A previously healthy 21 year old Sri Lankan female admitted with shortness of breath for 1 week duration with associated low grade fever and profuse sweating...

We report a clinical trial testing vaccination of autologous myeloblasts admixed with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor secreting K562 cells after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or acute myeloid leukemia (AML) with ≥5% marrow blasts underwent myeloblast collection before HSCT. At approximately day +30, 6 vaccines composed of irradiated autologous myeloblasts mixed with GM-K562 were administered. Tacrolimus-based graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis was not tapered until vaccine completion (∼day 100)...

Background: Clozapine-induced eosinophilia had been reported in several studies about blood dyscrasias in clozapine-treated patient. The largest study with 2404 patients in Italy found the incidence of 2.2% by criteria of more than 0.4 × 109 /l. Associated cases of pancreatitis, hepatitis, colitis, nephritis, and myocarditis were reported. Interestingly, incidence of myocarditis is high in Australia, but low in the rest of the world. In the following, we will present a case of clozapine-induced eosinophilia which spontaneous resolution was noted under continuation of clozapine...

Fulminant myocarditis is one of the most challenging diseases. We sought to examine the outcomes of our multidisciplinary treatment strategy for fulminant myocarditis. A retrospective review of consecutive 30 patients with fulminant myocarditis was conducted. Of the 30 patients, 25 required mechanical circulatory support (MCS). Percutaneous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) was the first-line therapy to rescue the patients and inserted in 23 of them. The other 2 were implanted with temporary ventricular assist device (t-VAD) with extracorporeal centrifugal pump(s)...

The patient was a 32-year-old man with a previous history of bronchial asthma. He was admitted with chief complaints of dyspnea and skin rash associated with itching of the palms and soles of the feet, which began 2 weeks earlier. Because of the presence of cardiac failure and increase in the peripheral blood eosinophil count, eosinophilic myocarditis (EM) was suspected. His blood pressure gradually decreased and the patient went into cardiogenic shock. Therefore, endomyocardial biopsy was performed and was immediately followed by corticosteroid therapy and intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) placement...

An autopsy case of sudden death in a 33-year-old man with neurofibromatosis type 1 (von Recklinghausen disease), pheochromocytoma, and myocarditis is reported. The decedent was found in his bedroom in cardiopulmonary arrest. Polypoid, elastic dermal papules on the neck, chest, abdomen, and back, and flat dark-brown macules on the chest and abdomen were observed. Flat, ovoid, dark-brown freckles were present in both axillae. Examination of the right adrenal gland revealed a tumor measuring 5 cm × 5 cm × 3 cm...

REVIEW
Christopher C Cheung, Maggie Constantine, Amir Ahmadi, Carolyn Shiau, Luke Y C Chen
Persistent eosinophilia can cause cardiac tissue damage, typically in the form of eosinophilic myocarditis, whether the underlying cause is reactive, a clonal myeloid disorder, or idiopathic hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES). Eosinophilic myocarditis ranges from mild localized disease to multifocal widespread infiltrates associated with myocardial necrosis, thrombotic complications and endomyocardial fibrosis. Systemic treatment varies widely depending on the underlying cause, so thorough investigation and precise diagnosis are essential...

We present the case of a 28-year-old man who presented with chest pain and elevated cardiac biomarkers, with no evidence of acute ischaemia. He had a pronounced eosinophilia, abnormal echocardiographic, cardiac MRI and CT findings. He underwent transbronchial biopsy of carinal lymph nodes and of lung parenchyma. Endomyocardial biopsy yielded an eosinophilic infiltrate. He was treated with high dose glucocorticoids and made a rapid recovery. Testing for FIP1L1-PDGFRA and other BCR-ABL1 mutations was negative...

Necrotizing eosinophilic myocarditis is a rare but potentially fatal condition that requires prompt recognition and treatment. We describe a case of a young athlete presenting with chest pain and breathlessness, with evidence of rapidly deteriorating cardiac function. The condition was successfully treated with corticosteroids, with no evidence of residual myocardial damage. This is the first reported case to demonstrate the utility of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis and monitoring response to treatment...

Although myocarditis is caused by viral infections in about 50% of cases in European countries, various other causative agents are known. We report the case of a 51-year-old man who died several months after being diagnosed with asthma by his general practitioner. This diagnosis had been confirmed by a pulmonologist approximately 6 weeks before the man's death. To rule out the possibility of medical malpractice the prosecuting authority ordered a forensic autopsy. At autopsy macroscopic indicators for perimyocarditis and pneumonia were found...

Eosinophilic myocarditis is a rare disease with an unknown etiology, that may be severe and even lethal. Early treatment based on steroids may prevent deterioration and even lead to complete cure, but it requires rapid diagnosis. The gold standard for diagnosis of the disease is by endomyocardial biopsy but this test has low sensitivity and involves risks to the patient. This case report presents a patient who was admitted with complaints of chest pain. During her workup, with the help of cardiac MRI, eosinophilic myocarditis with mild deterioration in heart function was diagnosed...
