The cardiac manifestations typically include angina pectoris and myocardial infarction despite angiographical ly normal coronary arteries (because of the accumulation of lipid moieties in coronary endothelial cells), increased left ventricular wall thickness simulating hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (because of accumulation in myocytes), left ventricular dysfunction and failure, and mitral regurgitation (because of deposition in valvular fibroblasts).
