Abstract

Localized basal septal hypertrophy (LSH) is usually an incidental echocardiographic finding and, as opposed to asymmetric hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (AHC), is of no clinical significance. We report a case of a patient with LSH who developed a severe left ventricular outflow gradient during acute myocardial ischaemia, apical akinesis and compensatory hyperkinesis of basal parietal segments.
