Driss Britel, Nadia Bourzine, Zouhair Lakhal, Aatif Benyass

Peripartum (postpartum) cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a rare dilated cardiomyopathy causing heart failure. It occurs in previously healthy women in the final month of pregnancy and up to 5 months after delivery. It is rare in prepartum and 90 % of the cases occur in first two months of postpartum period. The signs, symptoms and treatment of PPCM are similar to that of heart failure. Early diagnosis and proper management are the corner stone for better outcome of these patients. We report a serious case of PPCM complicated by pulmonary embolism and left ventricle thrombosis that was successfully managed.The aim of this report is to make health professionals aware of this entity in a patient with dyspnea in the postpartum period.
