Four patients presented with a clinical pattern of idiopathic cardiomyopathy. Anasarca of recent onset was the sole manifestation in the second patient. Ventriculography and selective coronary angiography revealed the presence of occlusive disease of all three coronary arteries as the underlying cause of ischemic cardiomyopathy. In 3 patients, the history failed to reveal any chest pain and there were no electrocardiographic abnormalities. Close follow-up of patients in the high-risk atherogenic group, especially diabetes, using physical examination, non-invasive methods of evaluation, and roentgenograms may offer some earlier clues for a diagnosis of ischemic cardiomyopathy. As observed in 3 of our patients, proper medical management including diet and bed rest. may play a role in prolonging their life span.
