  • Hypereosinophilic Syndrome
    Löffler's Syndrome Loeffler Endocarditis

    Hypereosinophilic syndromes (HES) are a collection of disorders defined by persistent and significantly elevated levels of eosinophils in the blood, in addition to evidence of direct damage to at least one organ.

    Löffler's Syndrome Loeffler Endocarditis
  • Eosinophilic Endomyocardial Disease
    Endocarditis

    Loeffler endocarditis is a form of restrictive cardiomyopathy which affects the endocardium and occurs with white blood cell proliferation, specifically of eosinophils. […] Eosinophilic states that may occur in association with Loeffler endocarditis include hypereosinophilic syndrome, eosinophilic leukemia, carcinoma, lymphoma, drug reactions[2]

  • Acute Bacterial Endocarditis

    Bacterial Endocarditis Endocarditis

    Subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) is the microbial infection of the endocardium with an indolent nature. It has the potential to disseminate by means of septic emboli. Although subacute bacterial endocarditis (SBE) develops insidiously and has a slow progression over weeks to months, it is often aggressive.…[5]
