Peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is defined as the onset of acute heart failure without demonstrable cause in the last trimester of pregnancy or within the first six months after delivery. We report a case of PPCM (LVEF < 39%) in a 30-year-old housekeeper requiring emergency Caesarean section, who was successfully managed with combined spinal-epidural anesthesia, using low-dose fentanyl for the spinal anesthesia.
