AbstractCardiac failure is a common medical presentation in Uganda.This study primarily focuses on the aetiology of heart failure in 65 adult patients and assesses the utility of echocardiography in a resource-limited setting. Our findings suggest that endomyocardial fibrosis is much less prevalent than previously described in other regions of Uganda and highlights the need for more basic descriptive studies on common presenting illnesses in rural Africa.
