AbstractAbstract Gemcitabine is a commonly used antineoplastic agent used to treat a variety of cancers with rarely reported cardiac side effects. We describe a case of a 67‐year‐old woman with follicular lymphoma who experienced a rarely reported side effect of gemcitabine: cardiomyopathy. This case highlights a multiple hit mechanism of myocyte damage that may occur following the use of multiple cardio‐toxic agents despite their administration in doses not associated with cardiotoxicity.
