A 29-year-old pregnant woman with a history of anthracycline-induced clinical heart failure

By Valentina Scheggi and Fabio Mori

Abstract

The number of women with heart disease who reach childbearing age in a good functional state increases continuously as advances in diagnosis and treatment improve overall health and prognosis. The cardiologist’s role is to give the woman an estimate of both maternal and fetal risk to allow her to make an informed decision about embarking on a pregnancy, and to provide appropriate antenatal care. There are only a few data about the natural history of anthracycline-induced cardiomyopathy during preg- nancy; we report our experience of a 29-year- old pregnant woman with a history of anthracycline-induced clinical heart failure
