In adults with acromegaly (from excessive growth hormone in the blood.)
People who have pheochromocytoma (a tumor that produces adrenaline.)

As a result, the heart become more resistant to filling with blood from the lungs.
This leads to back pressure in the lung veins.
This, in turn, can cause fluid to accumulate in the lungs.
The person, as a result, becomes chronically short of breath.

Symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy include:
Palpitations produced by irregular heartbeats
Heart failure with shortness of breath
Sudden death may result from irregular heartbeats
Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is usually diagnosed from physical examination. It has a characteristic sound that can be identified by an experienced physician through a stethoscope.
