Cardiomyopathies have either a primary (without associated anomalies) or a secondary origin. They are classified in three groups according to their anatomy and function: hypertrophic, dilated or restrictive. We review here the relevant diagnostic points of each type as well as their treatment. Restrictive cardiomyopathies, arrhythmogenic right ventricle, non compaction and Uhl's anomaly will not be dealt with in detail as they are very seldom in children.
