Abstract

Using echocardiography, we identified 21 patients with a syndrome that included severe concentric cardiac hypertrophy, a small left ventricular cavity, and supernormal indexes of systolic function without concurrent medical illness or ischemic heart disease. Thirteen of the patients presented with dyspnea or chest pain. All patients studied had a history of hypertension and were compared with normotensive controls matched for age and sex. The patients were elderly (mean age, 73.3 years), predominantly female (16 patients), and mostly black (15 patients). Their cardiac function was characterized by excessive left ventricular emptying (ejection fraction on two-dimensional echocardiography [patients vs. controls], 79±4 vs. 59±5%, P
