  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 16-year-old woman suffering from bronchial asthma since 2 years previously was admitted to the hospital because of high grade fever, dyspnea, skin eruption and arthralgia. Laboratory data revealed pronounced eosinophilia with elevated immunoglobulin E value. A chest X-ray film showed cardiomegaly with pulmonary congestion. Left ventriculograms showed diffusely reduced motion of the left ventricle (LV). Various clinical symptoms and laboratory data were resolved shortly after the administration of corticoste-roids, but the LV dysfunction persisted for at least three months.
