Chest pain is the one of the most common reason for adult visits to the emergency department. Screening for life threatening conditions is high priority in these patients; however keeping in mind lesser known yet important etiologies may help triage patients better. Apical Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a relatively benign variant commonly seen in East Asian population that may present as acute coronary syndrome and work up in these patients are often similar to coronary artery disease. We discuss in this case report about a middle aged male presenting with chest pain and later found to have apical HCM guided by imaging.
