Abstract

We experience a case of pseudopolycytemia in dilated cardiomyopathy in a 62 years old man with chronic alcoholism. The patient was successfully managed by stress reduction, stopping of smoking, abstaining from alcohol drinking, use of digoxin, small dose lasix, and phlebotomy. To our knowledge, this is the first case of pseudopolycytemia in dilated cardiomyopathy in Korea. We reported this case with a review of literatures.
