  • When Eosinophils Attack

    Description:
    This interesting case involves a patient with cardiogenic shock due to an unusual form of cardiomyopathy. This diagnosis is frequently missed as it is often not even considered.

The patient was treated with both left and right ventricular support devices (LVAD, RVAD) and survived through hospital discharge.
