Acute Reversible Cardiomyopathy Complicating Toxic Shock Syndrome

Arch Intern Med. 1982;142(5):1032-1034. doi:10.1001/archinte.1982.00340180190031

• 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.
