ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 36-year-old male with a 3-month history of shortness of breath and ankle swelling is presented. An axillary lymph node biopsy showed a diagnosis of T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. He was diagnosed with eosinophilia-induced cardiomyopathy and treatment was commenced with imatinib mesylate, an orally active tyrosine kinase inhibitor, at 400 mg daily. INSET: Case Report.
