After a general introduction, the classification systems for cardiomyopathy are discussed. The main clinical types are discussed together with their variants. Hypertrophic, dilated, restrictive, non-compaction, mitochondrial and arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy are all detailed and illustrated. Tables list the many genes associated with development of these cardiomyopathies. Rarer forms such as histiocytoid cardiomyopathy and mitogenic cardiomyopathy are also illustrated.
