It has now been 50 years since the initial clinical description of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. In this regard, it is noteworthy that the first patient diagnosed with this disease has survived to date in good health with an active and productive lifestyle-albeit with heart transplantation necessitated by an aggressive disease course with progression to the end-stage phase.
