Echocardiographic features of idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis (IHSS) are described. Systolic anterior motion (SAM) of anterior mitral leaflet and asymetric septal hypertrophy (ASH) are considered as the diagnostic criteria of IHSS. Effects of amyl nitrite and propranolol-a beta blocker are studied. Echocardiographic screening of family members revealed this as a case of familial IHSS.
