Abstract

Churg-Strauss syndrome or allergic angiitis and granulomatosis is a rare systemic vasculitis. Cardiac involvement is the leading cause of mortality and includes eosinophilic endomyocarditis. We present a case of complete resolution of subendocardial involvement after high-dose corticosteroids, diagnosed by contrast-enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging.
