De novo left ventricular non-compaction is a rare pathology in the peripartum period. To the best of our knowledge, pregnancy-induced cardiomyopathy accompanied by severe mitral valve insufficiency requiring surgery during pregnancy has not been previously reported. Herein, we report the first postpartum case of de novo left ventricular non-compaction who underwent mitral valve repair.
