Abstract

We report a case of a 60-year-old man with a history of angina on exertion (New York Heart Association Class II) who was found to have mid-cavitary obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy on two-dimensional echocardiography and whose coronary angiogram showed right coronary artery–left ventricular fistula, with no significant coronary atherosclerosis suggestive of ischaemic heart disease. The patient was started on betablocker therapy, and on follow-up his angina improved. The patient had a benign course and did not have any progressive heart failure or acute coronary syndrome on follow-up. This case report highlights a rare association of mid-cavitary obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with coronary artery fistula.
