Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is the most common primary cardiomyopathy seen in adults, and children. According
to epidemiological studies in two different geographical regions, the incidence of CMD in children is contained within
the 1.13 to 1.24 / 100,000 children. The etiology of DCM in children involves a heterogeneous variety of factors-genetic
and non-genetic. In 20-40% cases DCM in children is a consequence of late acute viral myocarditis. The article presents
a clinical case of a teenager, 16 years old, where the DCM etiology was postmyocarditis and the patient presented
severe heart failure. Taking into account the serious condition and the rapidly progressive cardiac decompensation,
palliative intervention was performed to implant a ventricular assist device. Patient's condition greatly improved with
the mechanical implant, but this method is one of the interventional steps used to perform further surgical steps such as
heart transplant (fi rst pediatric case reported in Republic of Moldova).
