Abstract


Left ventricular systolic dysfunction in childhood can be due to many causes. It may be because of sequel of myocarditis, metabolic causes, storage disorder, congenital heart disease or idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. Severe left ventricular outflow obstruction can cause reversible severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. Here we report a case of severe post-ductal coarctation of aorta presenting like dilated cardiomyopathy.

Keywords


Dilated cardiomyopathy; Reversible Left ventricular systolic dysfunction; Coarctation of aorta.
