    Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

  2. maria says:

    i believe it is likely to be a case of rhabdomyoma because leiomyosarcoma would be more heterogenous and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy would cause more diffuse thickening of the wall and would definetely affect the ventricle septum .

    Non ho esperienza di Cardio-RM. Comunque, l’ispessimento di parete è localizzato, non interessando tutta la parete ventricvolare;esso inoltre è omogeneo nella sua intensità di segnale.Il soggetto è giovane: se ci sono gli altri segni della
    Sclerosi tuberosa di B., la diagnosi dovrebbe essere di rabdomioma.

      One of the good things of these presentations is that you are exposed to new knowledge. Myself, I am learning with every case.

  4. Albert says:

    I also dont have any experience with cardioMRI, anyway I tried to get an idea a with the last case about it (cardiac amiloidosis) and reviewing the literature I got I would bet for asimetric septal hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

    Grazie per il bel caso:ignoravo le forme focali di HCM e le possibilità della RM di stratificare il rischio di morte improvvisa( specie nello sport).PS : consolate il “galactico” professore per il suo Barcellona a Milano!
