Puri A, Sethi R, Singh B, Dwivedi S, Narain V, Saran R, Puri V - Indian Pacing Electrophysiol J (2009)

Bottom Line: A 25-year-old previously asymptomatic pregnant woman at 36 weeks' gestation was noticed to have repetitive monomorphic ventricular tachycardia.A dilated left ventricle with moderately reduced systolic function was found on echocardiographic examination.This is a very rare presentation of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCMP) presenting with repetitive monomorphic ventricular tachycardia.

ABSTRACT
A 25-year-old previously asymptomatic pregnant woman at 36 weeks' gestation was noticed to have repetitive monomorphic ventricular tachycardia. A dilated left ventricle with moderately reduced systolic function was found on echocardiographic examination. This is a very rare presentation of peripartum cardiomyopathy (PPCMP) presenting with repetitive monomorphic ventricular tachycardia.

Figure 1: Electrocardiogram at time of admission showing a monomorphic ventricular tachycardia

Mentions: A 25 years old pregnant woman at 36 weeks gestation presented to the emergency room with the complaints of first episode of acute onset breathlessness and palpitation for 3 days. She did not have any previous history suggestive of heart disease and no family history of any heart disease. She had 2 previous pregnancies and both were uncomplicated. On admission her pulse rate was 200/min regular, blood pressure (BP) was 100/70 mmHg, and chest was clear despite the obvious breathlessness, rest of the physical examination was all with in normal limits. A twelve lead ECG revealed a regular monomorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT) (Figure 1).
