Apical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Apical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Presenting as Recurrent Unexplained Syncope

"Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (AHC) is a rare variant of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy...can be asymptomatic or present with syncope, chest pain (symptoms similar to those of acute coronary syndromes have been described), palpitations, and dyspnea...Although the prevailing consensus is that AHC has a benign prognosis,...there is emerging data showing increased risk for sudden cardiac arrest, fatal arrhythmias, heart failure, and ischemic events in patients with AHC."
