Abstract

We report the case of a 9-year-old girl who developed acute anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity with severe, refractory congestive heart failure. Rescue treatment with cardiac re-synchronization therapy was initiated, resulting in rapid improvement in left ventricular function and clinical status.
