Abstract

Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) in adults is mostly an idiopathic disease with a progressive and irreversible course. It usually carries a poor prognosis [1]. Rarely, a reversible metabolic etiology amenable to specific therapy is identified [1]. There are few cardiovascular abnormalities that are commonly encountered in patients with renal impairment; these include LVH, LV dilatation, and LV systolic and diastolic dysfunction [2]. Here, we report a case of 36 year-old female with reversible uremic cardiomyopathy due to obstructive uropathy due to moderately differentiated squamous cell type metastatic cervical carcinoma which completely responded to bilateral ureteric stenting.
