Abstract

Cisplatin is a very common chemotherapeutic agent used in the treatment of gynecologic malignancies, including cervical, ovarian, and endometrial cancers. Bradycardia is a rare, though potentially severe, side effect of this medication. Here we present the case of a young woman with ovarian cancer who demonstrated significant short-lived cardiotoxicity associated with cisplatin treatment.
