We describe the case of a 52-year-old woman presenting with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction, atrial fibrillation, and a new diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Transesophageal echocardiography following hemodynamic deterioration revealed completely restricted mitral leaflet motion with free mitral regurgitation, and severe left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction. Surgical intervention was considered; however, repeat imaging following a period of clinical stability revealed resolution of the findings suggesting a transient ischemic etiology. The case is supported by clinical and echocardiographic images with movie clips, and a discussion of the likely pathology in the context of the underlying condition.
