Peripartum (or postpartum) cardiomyopathy is a rare disease affecting 1:1,500 to 1:15,000 successful pregnancies in otherwise healthy women, has usually a relentless course and roughly 35% six-months mortality rate. In Latin America, Prof. A.B. Benchimol, the first Chairperson of Cardiology in the history of medical school in Brazil, and his North American colleague, Prof. Paulo Schlesinger, significantly contributed to the study of peripartum cardiomyopathy in Latin America and a remark must be made to their memory.
Paulo Roberto Benchimol Barbosa
