Abstract

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) in infancy has been described in association with many medical disorders. The genetic location and mode of transmission of HCM in families also has been reported extensively. We present an infant with nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy whose mother also had HCM. Regression of septal hypertrophy was documented in this patient by 1 year of age despite a positive family history.
