Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a fascinating disease of marked heterogeneity. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy was originally characterized by massive myocardial hypertrophy in the absence of known cause, a dynamic left ventricular outflow obstruction, and increased risk of sudden death. It is now well accepted that multiple mutations in genes encoding for the cardiac sarcomere are responsible for the disease. Complex morphologic and pathophysiological differences, disparate natural history studies, and novel treatment strategies underscore the challenge to the practicing cardiologist when faced with the management of the patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
