Özet

Myocardial bridging is usually seen in the setting of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or left ventricular hypertrophy. It is rarely reported in an asymptomatic patient with an otherwise structurally normal heart. Familial subaortic stenosis is also a rare entity, and its mode of inheritance is still unknown. Here, we described the case of a 13-year-old asymptomatic girl with a positive family history of sudden cardiac death and subaortic stenosis who was diagnosed with severe myocardial bridging concomitant with familial subaortic stenosis.
