Abstract

Fulminant necrotizing eosinophilic myocarditis (FNEM) is a rare but potentially fatal form of myocarditis characterized by new onset heart failure, often requiring inotropic and mechanical circulatory support (MCS). If clinical suspicion for the diagnosis is high, early endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) followed by prompt immunosuppressive therapy may prevent further decompensation and death.
