Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is uncommon in North America and is usually discovered incidentally during the routine medical assessment in elderly patients. The typical electrocardiographic (EKG) findings are described as typical symmetric deep T wave inversion and generally this diagnosis portends a good prognosis. We present a patient with apical variant hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with an unexpected EKG finding suggestive of ischemic myocardial injury or pericardial injury.
