4% were found to have palpitation, 1 patient had a breathing difficulty, 2% had grade-II systolic murmur, 1% had muffled heart sound and 3% had cardiomegaly (among which 1 child had pericardial effusion and 2 had dilated cardiomyopathy), said Dr Rewari.
At that time a loud systolic murmur was heard at the cardiac apex and an emergent transthoracic echocardiogram showed severe systolic anterior motion of mitral valve (SAM) and dynamic obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) with a mean pressure gradient of 64 mmHg (Figure 1).
A systolic murmur can be heard along the left sternal border; however, unlike patients with a patent ductus arteriosus, a diastolic component to the murmur is rare.

Characteristics of pathological murmurs (5-7) * Diastolic, pansystolic or late systolic * Usually loud (3/6 or more) * Associated with a thrill * Symptoms or signs of cardiac disease * Continuous * S1 inaudible or not single * Most do not change significantly on standing (the systolic murmur of the rare, but dangerous, hypertophic obstructive cardiomyopathy increases on standing) (7) * Examples: All murmurs caused by cardiac lesions.
