Patients with congestive cardiac failure may have an unusual cause
What is it about?
A case history of an unusual cause of congestive cardiac failure - atypical scleromyxedema. The clinical features, test results including the MRI scan and histopathology of the affected skin helped make the diagnosis. Treatment was geared to the heart failure.
Why is it important?
Doctors need to be aware of unusual presentations of this condition and work out appropriate options of treatment.
