Abstract

A 38 year male patient of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (N.H.L.) with pleuro-pulmonary involvement developed congestive cardiac failure refractory to the usual measures. Echocardiogram confirmed congestive cardiac myopathy with a small pericardial effusion. Treatment for N.H.L. led to dramatic recovery.
