Abstract

• A case of severe left ventricular dysfunction and low cardiac output accompanying the toxic shock syndrome was documented by two-dimensional echocardiography and hemodynamic measurements. This dysfunction was reversible over a five-month period. This appears to be a well-documented case of cardiomyopathy and toxic shock syndrome.
