Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a primary disease affecting the cardiac muscle and is characterized by heterogeneous genetic, morphological, functional and clinical features. The clinical presentation of HCM varies widely. Patients may be completely asymptomatic and identified incidentally. Atrial fibrillation is present in nearly 1 of 5 patients accompanied by significant risk of stroke. Symptoms of HCM are most commonly exertional dyspnoea, chest pain, fatigue, and pre-syncope or syncope. A small subset of patients will experience sudden cardiac death.
