Churg-Strauss syndrome can be associated with Loeffler-like eosinophilic endocarditis. We report a case of a young woman in which the diagnosis of Churg-Strauss syndrome was made subsequently to the magnetic resonance demonstration of eosinophilic endocarditis associated to left ventricle apical thrombosis. In our report, this rare condition evolved in an unusual complication: the embolic migration of the left ventricle apical thrombus in the abdominal aorta as showed by multi-detector-computed-tomography angiography.
