ABSTRACT We describe the case of a dilated cardiomyopathy with angiographically normal coronary arteries in a 32-year-old man who underwent head and spine radiotherapy and high dose antracicline chemotherapy at the age of 5 year for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The long-term detrimental cytotoxic effect of remote life-saving chemotherapy should be considered in survivals of leukemia.
