The most common causes of restrictive cardiomyopathy are amyloidosis and idiopathic myocardial fibrosis (a scarring of the heart of unknown cause). Restrictive cardiomyopathy is frequently encountered after a heart transplantation. Other causes of restrictive cardiomyopathy include sarcoidosis, hemochromatosis, radiation fibrosis, and various tumor infiltrations of the heart. More rarely, restrictive cardiomyopathy is caused by diseases of the endocardium (the lining of the heart) such as endomyocardial fibrosis and Loeffler\'s syndrome.

disagree  Michelle Wolfson: The patient is having foot pain and thus needs "injections" of medication to help the pain.

disagree  Joseph Tein: This is a little late, but I'm just passing through here. I don't see how a reference to cardiomyopathy applies to the left foot, and the reference given (the first one,couldn't open the second one) makes no reference to "infiltrations" in the foot..
