Familial Study of Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy


Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy has been a well-known genetical transmitted disease entity with the advance of echocardiography. We have recently experienced a family with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy proved by noninvasive methods including chest x-ray,, electrocardiography and echocardiography. The propositus of this family was a 21 year-old solier who was admitted because of exertional dyspnea during military exercise.

The clinical study is reported with the concerned literatures.
