Resumen

COSTABEL, Juan P. et al. Apical Hypertrophic Myocardiopathy Mimicking Acute Coronary Syndrome: Contribution of Three-Dimensional Echocardiography. Rev. argent. cardiol. [online]. 2008, vol.76, n.6, pp. 488-490. ISSN 1850-3748.

Apical hypertrophic myocardiopathy is characterized by the presence of hypertrophy localized to the left ventricular apex. This type of hypertrophic myocardiopathy usually presents favorable clinical outcomes and a benign prognosis. Nevertheless, the typical presence of significant alterations in the electrocardiogram may mimic the existence of coronary artery disease. In this sense, image tests have great clinical implications to arrive at a definite diagnosis. We present a case report of apical hypertrophic myocardiopathy in a context of chest pain and difficulties to perform a diagnosis; the advantages of three-dimensional echocardiography for the assessment of this disorder are described.

Palabras clave : Cardiomyopathy, Hypertrophic, Apex; Echocardiography, Three-dimensional.
