A 70-year-old male with known hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and latent obstruction presented with new onset of cardiogenic shock. He had a new resting left ventricular (LV) outflow gradient of 90 mmHg, and new severe LV systolic dysfunction. Because of rapid deterioration despite medical management he was urgently sent for surgical relief of obstruction, which immediately reversed both the LV dysfunction and shock. A second patient, a 58-year-old male also with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and latent obstruction presented with collapse, cardiogenic shock, 135 mmHg resting LV outflow gradient and new severe LV systolic dysfunction. His profound shock was irreversible with pharmacologic management, but surgical relief of obstruction reversed both his LV dysfunction and shock. Echocardiography plays a pivotal role in the management of these acutely ill patients.. (Echocardiography, ****;**:E1-E6).
