The article focuses on evaluating the heart of an endurance athlete. The marathon runner's heart may simulate a diseased heart by exhibiting abnormal clinical findings, electrocardiographic abnormalities, and cardiac enlargement by x-ray. Evidence gathered to date indicates the wide range of these findings in marathon runners. Radiologic documentation of an enlarged heart, however, is a poor indicator of the histologic and gross anatomic changes of the heart. The true significance of the electrocardiographic anomalies requires further clarification.
