Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) commonly presents with exertional dyspnea, fatigue, dependent edema and ascites. Jugular venous distension with prominent positive waves, S3 gallop, and regurgitant murmur are usual signs of DCM. There is one reported case of DCM presented with superior vena cava (SVC) thrombosis. Our patient presented with classical clinical features of SVC syndrome, later on confirmed as having DCM and there was no evidence of structural SVC obstruction.
