Abstract

Eosinophilic endomyocarditis is a manifestation of hypereosinophilic syndrome, characterized by prolonged (>6 months), unexplained peripheral blood eosinophilia (> 1,500 cells/mm3) with end-organ damage in unknown causes. We report a case of a 42-year-old patient who developed eosinophilic endomyocarditis following upper respiratory tract symptoms for 2 months. Additionally, endomyocarditis was combined with massive pleural effusion and pericardial effusion, which have not been reported in Korea.
