Résumé : A 60-year-old man without any history of cardiac disease was admitted for fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) with coma which revealed severe dilated cardiomyopathy.The patient improved with an adapted medical treatment and was finally discharged from the hospital. Congestive heart failure is a rare cause of FHF, but an important differential diagnosis because it has a specific and potentially efficient treatment.
