The article cites a case report of a 38-year old man, who was admitted to the Cardiac Department because of effort dyspnea and giddiness of two years' duration. Physical examination showed no cyanosis, engorgement of the neck veins, enlargement of the liver or peripheral edema. Both lungs were clear. On palpation of the precordium a presystolic and protodiastolic impulse was felt, and on cardiac auscultation a fourth cardiac and a third heart sound were heard over both the right and the left ventricle. Selective angiocardiography with injection of the contrast into the left atrium showed impairment of left ventricular filling in diastole, and bulging of the septum into the right ventricular outflow tract in systole.
