Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in South African Blacks.


Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) has been considered rare among the Black population of southern Africa. We report 7 patients with the disease who presented during a 14-month period. Current concepts in the approach to the diagnosis and treatment of HCM are discussed. It is possible that with greater awareness of the occurrence of the condition in Blacks the diagnosis of HCM will be made in more members of this population group.
