Background: Restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM) is rare in childhood, but has a grave prognosis. The cause of disease in most cases is unknown. Objective: To determine the prevalence of sarcomere protein gene mutations in children with idiopathic RCM. Methods: Twelve patients (9 female, mean age 5.1 years) with idiopathic RCM referred between 1991 and August 2006 underwent detailed clinical and genetic evaluation. Nine had received cardiac transplants at the time of the study. The entire coding… Expand
