Why we need to be vigilant over myocardial thickening in oncology
patients? A cardiac magnetic resonance case.
We present a patient who was on active surveillance for lung
adenocarcinoma and hypertrophic septal cardiomyopathy (HCM), was
referred for cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) assessment for risk
stratification due to HCM. CMR revealed a large myocardial metastasis
obstructing mid-apical left and right ventricular cavity. Any wall
thickening in oncology patients should prompt to perform further imaging
before establishing certain diagnosis.
