We describe a patient who presented with typical symptoms of submassive pulmonary embolism associated with newly diagnosed cardiomyopathy. Contrast enhanced computed tomography demonstrated extensive venous thrombosis, and late enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging was consistent with dilated cardiomyopathy with midwall fibrosis. We discuss the images and aetiology of the cardiomyopathy.
