We present the case of a 60-year-old lady who was treated with chemotherapy for myeloma. Following initiation of bortezomib, she developed heart failure which was associated with a reduction in left ventricular systolic function. A gadolinium enhanced cardiovascular magnetic resonance scan demonstrated midwall hyperenhancement consistent with midwall fibrosis.
