Abstract

A case of dilated cardiomyopathy arose after a spontaneous abortion at the second month of pregnancy is reported. Whereas clinical, hemodynamic and gross features pointed to a diagnosis of right ventricular cardiomyopathy, histologic findings of inflammatory infiltration, myocyte degeneration and interstitial fibrosis of the atrial and ventricular walls allowed to a correct diagnosis of chronic myocarditis.
