Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA), which was previously called Churg-Strauss syndrome, is a necrotizing systemic vasculitis of unknown cause accompanied by prominent eosinophilia. Cardiovascular complications, including eosinophilic myocarditis, are a major cause of mortality in this disorder. Acute pericarditis with slight pericardial effusion is a typical manifestation in EGPA, though hemodynamically significant pericardial effusion has been reported in a few cases. We report a case that initially presented with isolated cardiac tamponade, which was followed by systemic manifestations of EGPA over 3 weeks. Including the present case, previous EGPA cases with cardiac tamponade are reviewed to delineate its clinical characteristics.
