In brief: Genetic disorder

It's a genetic heart muscle disease where some parts if the heart muscle in the left ventricle are very thick and can cause obstruction of the blood flowing out of the heart.
Some patients can get shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness. She should follow with a cardiologist to evaluate for risk of sudden death and need of specific treatments.
