Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The investigators report similar phenotypes of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with left ventricular apical aneurysm and thrombus in 2 brothers aged 8 years apart. This report highlights the genetic predisposition for this unique, high-risk phenotype, the issue of prophylactic anticoagulation, and the importance of nonstandard echocardiographic imaging views in the assessment of these patients.
