Abstract
Peripartum cardiomyopathy is relatively uncommon and characterized by cardiac dilatation and congestive heart failure of unexplained cause during the last trimester of pregnancy or within 6 months after delivery. The cause of this disease is unknown and the mortality rate may be as high as 25 to 50 percent. Recently, we experienced a case of this disease in 34 year-old woman who had triple pregnancy and preterm labor at 30 weeks of gestation. This case was summarized here with brief review of related literatures.
Key Words: peripartum cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, triple pregnancy, preterm labor
