Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a rare form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy which classically involves the apex of the left ventricle. Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can be an incidental finding, or patients may present with chest pain, palpitations, dyspnea, and syncope. In this article, we describe the clinical presentation of a seven-year-old girl who was asymptomatic, presented for cardiac evaluation and was detected to have an apical variant of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
