Human genes for familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy [DOID:11986]

Cardiomyopathy, which literally means "heart muscle disease," is the deterioration of the function of the myocardium (i.e., the actual heart muscle) for any reason. People with cardiomyopathy are often at risk of arrhythmia or sudden cardiac death or both. Cardiomyopathy can often go undetected, making it especially dangerous to carriers of the disease.
