Fulminant hepatic failure is infrequently seen as a consequence of acute congestive heart failure. Recognition of this entity is important as treatment directed towards heart failure should help resolve the liver failure. A case of fulminant hepatic failure due to previously unrecognized cardiomyopathy is presented. A liver transplantation was being considered for fulminant hepatic failure until hemodynamic monitoring studies demonstrated that, in fact, the patient had severe cardiomyopathy. Treatment directed at his cardiomyopathy resolved the liver failure. Therefore, prompt recognition of such a phenomenon would enable early institution of appropriate therapeutic measures with the hope of clinical benefit to the patient.
