Abstract

A case of a 38-year-old female with symptomatic Churg-Strauss syndrome and congestive cardiomyopathy, complicated by cardiac arrest and left ventricular thrombus formation, is presented. Prompt institution of low molecular weight heparin and steroids resulted in rapid thrombus lysis and improvement of systolic left ventricular function.
