Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a congestive cardiomyopathy that occurs within the last month of pregnancy or first six months after delivery. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are of paramount importance. Our patient did not respond to conventional therapy and needed a left ventricular assist device and subsequent orthotopic cardiac transplantation to survive.
