Abstract: We report the clinical case report of a 67-year-old patient with diagnoses of hypertension, ischemic heart disease and a previous history of Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) and nonspecific signs and symptoms (general illness, weight loss, hyporexia, fever, impressive edema at the feet, systemic arterial hypotension). So, we performed a series of laboratory, radiological and instrumental examinations, but the clinical picture remained difficult to interpret. The echocardiographic evaluation led us to a suspicion of infiltrative heart disease, and the magnetic resonance, while confirming the interesting data observed at the ultrasound exam.
