    Myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma (MIFS) is a recently defined rare tumor. It is mainly found in the upper and lower extremities of adults. Due to its high local recurrence rate and low metastatic rate, it is classified as a low grade-malignancy. Accurate diagnosis and early, wide excision...

    Eosinophilic myocarditis is caused by activation of eosinophilic granulocytes whereby there is a release of eosinophilic granules. Quite a few of the released compounds, especially eosinophilic cationic proteins, have a tissue-damaging effect also in the myocardium. Eosinophilia may be due to...
