We report a 18 years old woman that was admitted with a history of four days of cardiac failure with acute pulmonary edema, high blood pressure, left ventricular dilatation and moderate to severe systolic dysfunction. Twenty four hours after admission she had a miscarriage, expelling a mole. The diagnosis of hyperthyroidism caused by a mole and early pre eclampsia was confirmed and the patient was managed with diuretics and dopamine. Symptoms abated, thyroid function tests, cardiac function and size returned to normal values and the patient was discharged asymptomatic, ten days after admission. (Rev Méd Chile 2001; 129: 303-6).
