One of our patients had been recovering from prolonged illness for about eight months following extensive deep burns of the lower limbs, along with other complications, when he had a sudden attack of acute dyspnea with orthopnea. The cause of this condition was diagnosed as secondary hypodynamic cardiomyopathy. We found no previous report of such a complication following burns in the available literature.
