Chronic Eosinophilic Pneumonia (CEP) is an idiopathic disorder characterized by an abnormal marked accumulation of eosinophils in the interstitial and alveolar spaces of the lung. CEP is typically suspected in a patient with progressive dyspnoea over one to four months and a chest radiograph showing bilateral peripheral or pleural-based opacities. Dominant extrapulmonary manifestations in CEP are rare. We report a 44-year-old Iranian woman with progressive dyspnea, peripheral chest opacity, and cardiac involvement. A diagnosis of CPE was considered base on clinical and para clinical criteria.
