Abstract

The authors report the case of a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy who developed progressive and severe left ventricular wall thinning, as assessed by two-dimensional echocardiography, despite a preserved supranormal ejection fraction and an absence of cardiac symptoms. Extensive fibrosis was identified on cardiovascular magnetic resonance. (J Am Soc Echocardiogr 2009; 22: 1196.e1-1196.e2.)
