Abstract

Heart failure symptoms, in particular dyspnea, may be difficult to frame in a patient with cancer. We report the case of an oncological patient whose dyspnea could have been attributable to various causes and whose management was challenging in the context of the coronavirus disease-2019 pandemic. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
