Eosinophilic Myocarditis as a Cause of Acute Cardiac Syndromes

It is most important to note that only endomyocardial biopsy is diagnostic, and it should probably be performed when EM is suspected. The challenge is suspecting the diagnosis when the serum eosinophil count is elevated in only 76% of cases. One feasible next step would be to investigate a role for novel serum biomarkers, such as major basic protein or eosinophil derived neurotoxin, in addition to troponins and natriuretic peptides to refine the cohort of patients who should have a biopsy.
