Dobutamine Reactions 1680, p120 - 2 Dec 2017 Unmasking of an early-stage diabetic cardiomyopathy: case report An elderly patient [exact age and sex not stated] experienced unmasking of previously undiagnosed early-stage diabetic cardiomyopathy following the administration of dobutamine. The diabetic patient, who was presented with pulmonary oedema was subsequently investigated. All the echocardiographic parameters including strain rate were normal at rest. However, during a stress echocardiogram involving administration of dobutamine [dosage and route not stated], he developed deep systolic deterioration, which unmasked an early-stage diabetic cardiomyopathy [outcome not stated]. Author comment: "We report a case of an elderly diabetic patient presenting with pulmonary edema in whom . . . dobutamine stress echocardiography induced a deep systolic deterioration unmasking an early-stage diabetic cardiomyopathy."
