Double-chambered right ventricle (DCRV) is an uncommon congenital heart disease. Anomalous muscle bundles in the right ventricle divide the right ventricle into two portions and cause intracavitary obstruction of the right ventricle. We report a patient with DCRV mimicking asymmetric septal hypertrophy. We did clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic evaluation. Surgical intervention was successfully managed.
