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 is common in childhood, and in most cases it is mild and of limited clinical relevance, being often secondary to allergy or infections. In rare cases, eosinophilia may be idiopathic or related to neoplastic aetiology. When severe and protracted, it can cause potentially irreversible...
