We describe a case of nonischemic reversible dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) due to tacrolimus in patient of live-related renal transplantation. Very few cases due to tacrolimus associated DCM has been reported in the literature, especially in the renal transplant recipient. With the growing use of tacrolimus in transplant medicine, this case report expands the literature of tacrolimus cardiotoxicity and can be useful for clinicians to evaluate and manage the case of DCM in the postrenal transplant recipient.
