Abstract

Sheehan syndrome, characterized by postpartum pituitary necrosis, is an important cause of hypopituitarism in developing countries. We report the case of a 50-year-old female with Sheehan syndrome, who had two spontaneous conceptions following severe postpartum hemorrhage in her first delivery and presented 27 years later with moderate pericardial effusion and features of pseudohypertrophic myopathy mimicking muscular dystrophy.
