Acute eosinophilic myocarditis is a relatively rare disorder with serious morbidity and mortality. Due to its infrequency, standardized management guidelines are wanting. We present a case of acute, necrotizing eosinophilic myocarditis requiring several levels of critical care. We reviewed similar cases reported in the literature to highlight common clinical features, describe natural disease course and associated complications, and review varying approaches to medical therapy.
