Abstract

Cardiomyopathy is a significant clinical problem associated with sudden death. A molecular taxonomy is emerging that is refining the clinical classification system. We describe a patient with a pathogenic familial beta-myosin heavy chain mutation who was prenatally diagnosed with left ventricular hypoplasia and restrictive diastolic physiology.
