We encountered a patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy complicated with exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. Exercise-stress 99mTc- tetrofosmin imaging demonstrated reversible ischemia in the lateral wall, whereas resting fatty acid imaging with a new beta-methyl branched fatty acid analogue. I-123-15-(p-iodophenyl)-9-(R, S)-methylpentadecanoic acid (123I- 9-MPA), showed impaired uptake and accelerated washout kinetics in the inferoapical and posteroseptal walls but not in the ischemia-related region. These findings suggest that the metabolic derangement is closely related to cardiomyopathy per se rather than exercise-induced myocardial ischemia in this patient with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and a spastic coronary lesion so that myocardial perfusion and 123I-9-MPA imagings may contribute to clarifying the etiological background of impaired myocardial fatty acid metabolism.
