Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: Case report
Brain and Mind Institute
A case report of a 19 year old young adult male who died suddenly without any apparent clinical cause is presented. Autopsy examination revealed hypertrophied interventricular septum and left ventricle suggestive of a hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). About 50% of hypertrophic cardiomyopathies are inherited as autosomal dominant disorder, sometimes associated with neuroectodermal syndromes, such as neurofibromatosis and pheochromocytoma. HCM is one of the common causes of severe arrhythmias and sudden death.
