Apical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Presenting as Recurrent Unexplained Syncope

Clinical Medicine & Research, 02/23/2012

The authors present a 47–year–old man with AHC who presented with recurrent syncope, but anomalies on his electrocardiogram went unnoticed on two clinical encounters. He was subsequently admitted to the service and rapidly diagnosed after the authors observed the very classical findings in the plain twelve lead electrocardiogram done at the time of admission. In a clinical encounter involving a patient presenting with recurrent syncope, special attention must be focused on the electrocardiogram to decipher the unique diagnostic features it might show.
