  • Cardiomyopathy, familial hypertrophic 27 (CMH27) [MIM:618052]: A form of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a heart disorder characterized by ventricular hypertrophy, which is usually asymmetric and often involves the interventricular septum. The symptoms include dyspnea, syncope, collapse, palpitations, and chest pain. They can be readily provoked by exercise. The disorder has inter- and intrafamilial variability ranging from benign to malignant forms with high risk of cardiac failure and sudden cardiac death. CMH27 is a severe, early-onset form with features of hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:26846950, ECO:0000269 PubMed:27106955, ECO:0000269 PubMed:28630369, ECO:0000269 PubMed:30046096}.
