Abstract


Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a rare cardiac disorder of unknown origin associated with a high risk of mortality (50%). Echocardiography confirms the diagnosis by showing a left ventricular dilatation and a decreased ejection fraction. Up to date, the treatment remains symptomatic. The authors report the case of a woman of 36 years old who presented a peripartum cardiomyopathy.

Author Keywords: peripartum, cardiomyopathy, pregnancy, heart failure, left ventricular dysfunction.
