2 doctors weighed in:

Are enlarged liver and cardiac hypertrophy related in any way? what can cause it? My boyfriend, with no prior medical conditions died from this and it does not run in the family. He did have a history of drug use in the past (smoke heroin)

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not directly related

Heart hypertrophy and enlarged liver are not directly related most of the time but certainly both can be related to drug use.
