Abstract
Stress cardiomyopathy and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are two distinct entities with different pathophysiologic causes. In the recent medical literature their concurrency has been described. During the acute phase of a stress cardiomyopathy making the diagnosis of a concomitant hypertrophic cardiomyopathy may be challenging, and has important implications in both the acute and longterm clinical management. Herein, we present a case of a stress cardiomyopathy occurring in a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, along with a review of the literature.
