Dilated cardiomyopathy which is a relatively rare heart disease of unknown origin is characterized by massive cardiomegaly as a result of the extensive dilatation of the ventricles. The authors experienced a case of dilated cardiomyopathy in a 5 year old male who expired suddenly in 5 weeks after onset. The autopsy was performed. The autopsy findings showed markedly enlarged left ventricle with globular shape in which the mural thrombi were present and the microscopic findings revealed interstitial fibrosis and atrophic changes of myocardial fibers with the evidence of degeneration. There were patchy thickening of endocardium, myocardial edema and mural thrombi. The brief review of the literatures was made.
Key Words: Dilated cardiomyopathy, Autopsy
