Özet

In this article, we report a case admitted with severe chest pain associated with ST segment elevation, pericardial effusion and aortic flap appearance in echocardiography at the 31 weeks of gestation, mimicking aortic dissection, but diagnosed with peripartum cardiomyopathy and successfully treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation after developing acute cardiogenic shock.
