We describe the case of a young pregnant woman with moderate mitral regurgitation who was admitted to our department for dyspnea. The patient was treated with low-dose diuretic therapy and ventilatory support. At follow-up echocardiographic evaluation, a progressive improvement of mitral regurgitation and pulmonary artery pressure was observed. The most significant hemodynamic changes occurring during pregnancy are reviewed and discussed in the setting of associated mitral regurgitation.
