Abstract

Hypereosinophilic syndrome is a clinical disorder characterized by peripheral eosinophilia and eosinophilic infiltration of multiple organ systems, including the cardiovascular system. The manifestations are variable, but cardiac involvement is the major source of morbidity and mortality, and several case reports have highlighted the various types of cardiac involvement. However, no reported case has simultaneously presented with pericardial effusion, myocarditis, and ascites. We report a case of a 28-year-old woman with hypereosinophilic syndrome involving both the heart and intra-abdominopelvic cavity.
