Abstract

Gadolinium-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance was performed in a patient with chemotoxic cardiomyopathy. Intramyocardial midwall linear delayed hyperenhancement was found. Such a finding is consistent with midwall fibrosis and/or myocardial cell loss due to cardiotoxic effect of chemotherapy.
