Forgotten cardiovascular diseases in Africa.

Clinical Research in Cardiology : Official Journal of the German Cardiac Society
Karen Sliwa, Ana Olga Mocumbi


Much of the global burden of cardiovascular disease is now carried by low and middle income countries. Unfortunately, many of these regions are still grappling with poverty and infection-related cardiovascular diseases, such as endomyocardial fibrosis, tuberculous pericarditis and rheumatic heart disease. In addition, Africa has its unique diseases that occur more commonly in Africans as peripartum cardiomyopathy or, almost uniquely in Africa, as subvalvular aneurysm. We present our perspective on forgotten cardiovascular disease in Africa in the context of the epidemic of cardiovascular disease due to global changes in life style.
