Giant cell myocarditis: a fatal cause of dyspnea in pregnancy

, : Giant cell myocarditis: a fatal cause of dyspnea in pregnancy. European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Biology 100(1): 105-107

The clinical course of a pregnant patient, who presented with progressive dyspnea and heart failure is described. Despite intensive care and resuscitative efforts to mother and child, both expired. The autopsy revealed giant cell myocarditis in the mother. Giant cell myocarditis can affect pregnant patients and should therefore be considered in the differential diagnosis of progressive dyspnea.

Lower-cost technologies have been introduced. We eva...
