Abstract

In a 45 yr old man with the hypereosinophilic syndrome, autopsy confirmed the diagnosis of cardiac disease, mainly endocardial thickening and extensive mural thrombosis of both ventricles. Early in the course of the disease, right ventricular endocardial biopsy had demonstrated the basic process. Restriction in filling and contraction of the right ventricle were demonstrated by functional studies. By echocardiographic study, progressive reduction in size of the right ventricular cavity and premature opening of the pulmonary valve were demonstrated, while this method was less adequate in identifying the process in the left ventricle.
