Abstract

Most patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy have abnormal electrocardiograms. In this study of 37 matched pairs in the pediatric age group, the 12-lead electrocardiogram did not differentiate between affected and normal children reliably enough to allow it to be used as a screening test in the general population.
