A 44-year-old woman with marked eosinophilia, leukocytosis, congestive heart failure, and the murmur of mitral stenosis had a restrictive type of pulse contour at cardiac catheterization. A right atrial angiogram revealed a huge right atrium, a small right ventricle, and a dilated contractile outflow tract consistent with the diagnosis of Loeffler's endocarditis. A marked conduction delay at the atrial level was demonstrated by His bundle electrogram studies.

    Coronary artery fistulae are uncommon but may be haemodynamically significant, being an incidental finding in 0.1–0.2% of coronary angiograms. Even rarer is the association between fistulae and non-atherosclerotic coronary artery aneurysms. They most frequently originate in the right...

    Eosinophilia has long been known as a hallmark of Churg-Strauss syndrome but has rarely been reported in Wegener’s granulomatosis (WG). Here we describe a patient with WG who had skin, kidney and lung involvement as well as striking peripheral eosinophilia and hyperimmunoglobulinaemia E...
