Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A 26-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital because of exertional dyspnea (New York Heart Association III), general fatigue and palpitations over the past 2 months. She had normal psychosomatic development until adulthood, no previous pregnancies and a history of rheumatic fever at young age. Although she referred a slow gradual worsening of general conditions for 2 years, no clinical evaluations were previously performed.
