We report a case of ventricular tachycardia due to peripartum cardiomyopathy in a 33-year-old woman. The clinical symptomatology was dominated by recurrent palpitations. Doppler echocardiography revealed dilated cardiac chambers and a left ventricular ejection fraction at 30%. Treatment with amiodarone led to cardioversion. Furosemide and captopril have been used to treat heart failure.
