We present a 28-year-old primigravida woman in whom congestive heart failure developed 3 months after delivery of a neonate. The patient underwent doxorubicin treatment 10 years previously. The combined cardiotoxicity of prior doxorubicin treatment and pregnancy is considered, and the importance of careful follow-up of cardiac function during pregnancy and postpartum in patients previously treated with doxorubicin is stressed.
