Hi! I watch TV series One Tree Hill and my favorite character is Lucas Scott who is basketball player. And he has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. I didn’t know anything about this heart disease before that. I’m wondering can athlete suffer from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy? My brother is athlete and I’m worried for him.

Yes, they can. When the sudden unexpected death occurs in a young athlete, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy should be suspected as the cause of death. In more than 50% of the cases of sudden unexpected death in a young athlete, it has been found that other family members are affected and the condition runs in the family.
