dc.description.abstract Background: Amniotic fluid embolism is a catastrophic illness related to the passage of fetal material into the pulmonary circulation causing cardiovascular collapse. Case: A 29-year-old female sustained cardiopulmonary arrest during delivery presumably due to amniotic fluid embolism. A right atrial mass in transit was detected by echocardiography. It had an appearance and pattern of motion that was suggestive of a gelatinous consistency and is likely to have been an amniotic fluid embolus. There was also evidence of acute right ventricular overload. Conclusion: We recommend that echocardiography be considered early on such conditions to gain more insight into the pathogenesis of this complication. © 2005 The European Society of Cardiology.
