yes it can be deadly, hypertrphy cause a disminution in the perfussion of cardiomyocites (heart cells) cause there's more tissue and the same blood vessels, and this could cause ischemia.-
the athletes hypertophy isn't the most common type, hypertension and aortic stenosis are, and those are more serious.-

hope he/she gets better.-

Hi, I have already been diagnosed with HCM in June of 2014. This month I had an ANA test done and it came back 1:640 so my doctor ordered a anti ro antibody which came back at 202.19. Apparently my body is attacking itself and I am going to see a rheumatologist, but what does this mean for my heart disease?
