Abstract

This case report describes a rare presentation of a cardiac anomaly in an 8-year-old, spayed female domestic
short-haired cat presented with heart failure. Complete diagnostic work-ups which included chest radiography,
electrocardiogram, echocardiography, and serum cardiac biomarker levels were performed. On echocardiography, a
band of tissue was found extending in the left ventricular chamber, dividing the chamber into basal and apical portions,
giving rise of a diagnosis of progressive double-chambered left ventricle. Suggestion to treat tachycardia and
pulmonary edema was given to the veterinarian who referred the case. However, the cat was found dead one month
later.
