Southeast Asian J Trop Med Public Health. 2009 Mar;40(2):327-9.


We present a case report of a 26-year-old male from Bulandsahar, India. The patient presented with right heart failure. Evaluation revealed peripheral eosinophilia. An echocardiogram and MRI showed biventricular hypertrophy with obliteration of the ventricular apices, typical of endomyocardial fibrosis. This condition is rare in Bulandsahar, India.
