A 70-year-old man developed hypertension many years previously and had a bout with severe congestive heart failure 4 to 5 years before his death. Autopsy showed congestion and edema characteristic of heart failure, and enlarged heart, and slight focal interstitial left ventricular fibrosis, but only slight to moderate coronary atherosclerosis.
