Calcification of myocardium is most common in the site of an old infarction or in an aneurysmal wall. In addition, Myocardial calcification may occur in association with endomyocardial fibrosis and hyperparathyroidism, as a result of focal toxic or inflammatory myocardial necrosis, as well as in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Calcium deposits due to parasites and due to neoplastic disease may also be seen, But, left ventricular endomyocardial calcification associated with apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is very rare. This report describes 2 cases of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with left ventricular endomyocardial calcification, diagnosed by the echocardiographic, angiographic and histologic findings.
