Peripartum Cardiomyopathy (PPCM) is a life-threatening condition affecting women during their late pregnancy or early postpartum period. This clinical entity, till date, has remained as a diagnosis of exclusion. We share our experience in treating a 27 years old lady with PPCM during puerperium. Despite being treated with standard anti-failure therapy, bromocriptine and prophylactic anticoagulation, she developed massive cerebral infarct secondary to left ventricular thrombosis. She underwent a long journey of rehabilitation and suffered severe debilitation.
