Abstract

Asymmetrical left ventricular hypertrophy secondary to interventricular septum hypertrophy is usually considered a typical phenotype of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. In rare cases other conditions such as tumors or lipomatous hypertrophy of the interventricular septum may have a similar presentation. We present a case of a male patient who presented for routine cardiology work up and was diagnosed of having ventricular septal hypertrophy secondary to localized lipomatous hypertrophy.
