    Abstract

    The ballooning posterior mitral leaflet syndrome was unrecognized as an anatomic or clinical entity until Barlow's initial description in 1963 [1]. Associated sudden death and familial occurrence have been clearly demonstrated [2–4], but despite this the significance of the syndrome as a cause of sudden death has not been sufficiently disseminated or appreciated.
