Keywordshypereosinophilic syndrome, acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, cardiac magnetic resonance
Objectives: to report a case of hypereosinophilic syndrome which presented clinically acute coronary syndrome.
Materials and methods: we describe a case of a 69-year-old woman with acute coronary syndrome and peripheral hypereosinophilia.
Results: the condition rapidly evolved to severe heart failure. Coronary disease was excluded by cardiac catheterization. Systemic corticosteroid therapy was initiated and further secondary causes of hypereosinophilia were excluded.
